CCHS have just informed parents that Ernest Newson their current uniform supplier and also supplier of CRGS uniform has gone into administration.

CCHS are asking Coes of Ipswich to stock the existing uniform as well as the new one as soon as possible. No word from CRGS yet.

Oh dear, that's sad news. The staff have always been very helpful when we have visited. I wonder where CRGS's uniform is going to be stocked now?

Thank you for sharing this news.

Are they still trading just now? Might stock up on bigger sizes now just in case we end up having to go all the way to Ipswich.

Really disappointed to hear this news. I have just looked on the Ernest Newson website and the company ceased trading as of yesterday 13th March. I can only assume that the shop has closed in Colchester already. Could really do with a new blazer as well. :(

If anyone has any further news, particularly where we can buy uniform from, please let us know.

There's a brief item on CRGS's website:
Quote:
CRGS Uniform Supplier
Wednesday, 14 March 2012 14:54

Stop Press: We have today been informed that our long-standing uniform supplier has gone into Receivership. We are in correspondence with several companies concerning the future supply of CRGS uniform and will inform parents as soon as we have made a decision.

Sadly judging by this quote from the gazette it seems it has already shut. I'm guessing the school's second hand shop is your only option at the moment.

Quote:
Ernest Newson, in Colchester High Street, closed on Tuesday.

Its glass doors have been painted over and a sign has been put up saying that it has passed to administrators FRP Advisory LLP.


CCHS are moving to Coes and I notice from their website that they have a Maldon branch - I wonder if they are a possibility in future?

Spoke to the deputy head of ColCHS at a school fayre earlier in the week. She said that Coes in Maldon would not be stocking the new uniform but if you gave them ring, they would get the items you wanted in a couple of sizes sent down to try on. Saves a journey to Ipswich.

CCHS have NOT gone to Coes in in Ipswich, they are using the company in Clacton called anglia sports & schoolwear and you can buy their new uniform online.
It's also cheaper now.

Lots of other schools are using them also

Some people also refer to Colchester County High as CCHS :)

The CCHS under discussion is Colchester County High School, not Clacton County High School.
