Ordering your Christmas tree is easy this year when it comes from Christmas Treeasy. They will deliver a high quality tree directly to your door and recycling can also be booked for the new year! Simply visit https://christmastreeasy.co.uk/ Enter ‘Maple School’ on your order and the PTA will receive a small donation.
Maple PTA exclusively sells Maple’s logo jumpers, polo shirts, PE kit and a selection of outdoor wear. All money raised from new and second-hand uniform sales goes straight to the Maple PTA.
Orders can be placed via the following online system at any time.
We place a monthly order with the supplier on the 15th of each month and delivery is typically 10 working days later. During the busy summer period (June-September) delivery times are extended and can take up to 20 working days.
Orders will be distributed via the classrooms and you will be notified by email when this happens.
Items can be returned for a refund or exchanged for an alternative size as long as they are unworn, unmarked and have all labels attached. Please contact us for returns/exchanges within 14 days of receipt of your order.
If you have questions or for any reason you are not able to order online then please contact the uniform team at: email@example.com
Second Hand Uniform
A second-hand uniform shop runs regularly throughout the year. Any outgrown uniform that is still in good condition can be donated to the second-hand uniform shop via the school office. Keep an eye on Monday messages for dates!
We recommend you read the Maple School Uniform policy for full guidance: https://maple.herts.sch.uk/download/school-uniform/
