Additional Information

Parking

The shop has its own entrance and parking – Entrance B off Coolinge Lane.

It is difficult to spot when coming from the Sandgate Primary direction – we would recommend that you find the school main entrance, drive along Coolinge Lane towards Sandgate Primary, and look for the Entrance B sign on your left.

Second Hand Uniform

Second hand uniform is available. Please email shop@folkestonegirls.kent.sch.uk with what you need, and sizing if possible, and we will look in our stock to see if we have it. SDLs also have some items for students. There is a voluntary donation page on Wisepay for second hand items, and parents are welcome to donate in exchange for an item if they would like to, but there is no obligation.

We welcome donations of clean, bagged, current uniform in good condition. It can be brought to the shop on Fridays between 1 and 3pm or dropped off at Main Reception.
