From Monday 21st September, we will only offer grab bags (sandwich, drink and snack) during school lunch. Despite our best efforts to offer a hot meal at lunchtime, we are unable to do so whilst ensuring social distancing measures between year groups are maintained. Year 7, 9, and 10 students should return to school on Tuesday 22nd September. Students from Progress Group 8E should return on 23rd September.

Buy School Uniform

There will be 2 ways to purchase uniform from Whittakers Schoolwear:

Option 1

  • Place your order online – www.whittakersschoolwear.co.uk (vouchers can not be used online) 
  • Ordering your uniform online means that you don’t have to leave your home. On their website you will need to click on the SHOP tab, then click on BLACKBURN, and locate BCHS school uniform.
  • Please try to order as soon as possible, to avoid not having your uniform in time for the start of term in September.

Option 2

  • Make an appointment with Whittakers to shop in store, at 20-26 Church Street, Blackburn, BB1 5AL.
  • To ensure the safety of staff and customers through social distancing, they will be operating a strict appointment only service in the shop. This means that we will not be allowing customers entry to the shop unless a prior appointment has been made.
  • You will be able to make your appointment from 22/06/2020 by downloading the Booksy app (available through app stores on both Apple and Android phones) and searching Whittakers Schoolwear Blackburn or you can visit www.whittakersschoolwear.co.uk and click on the BOOK APPT tab.
  • If you would like to visit their shop, please make your appointment as soon as you can after 22/06/2020. They will have extended opening hours over the summer including evenings and Sundays.
  • If you find that all appointments have been taken, and the shop is fully booked, you will have no option but to order your uniform online. Anyone who turns up to the shop without an appointment will be turned away.
