Concert Dress Order Form
Instead of school uniform we have a purple t-shirt with an embroidered logo with black trousers or skirts as our concert dress. Students have also suggested they would like the option of having matching hoodies that they could wear during rehearsals and on their way to and from concerts. The hoodies are also required for residential trips with Music.
 
There is an opportunity for students to purchase their own t-shirt and hoodie. T-shirts are priced at £4.50 and hoodies at £9.50 each.
 
Once you have completed this form the item will be added onto your ParentPay so you can make a payment. A payment must be received via ParentPay before we are able to put your order in.
 
If you have any questions about the t-shirts and hoodies, please contact me via email on k.wilson@unity.lancs.sch.uk
 
Next Order Deadline: 1st December 2020
