Dear Parents/Carers

I am delighted to be writing to you, to offer the opportunity to purchase a Class of 2022 Leaver’s Hoody for your son/daughter. We are currently working with Parade Schoolwear and are eagerly anticipating what is sure to be a wonderful keepsake to celebrate their time at St Mary’s.

We are in the process of compiling an order. The hoodies will have a large ‘22’ printed on the back, containing the names of all students in their Year Group and an embroidered school logo on the front. There is also an opportunity to personalise the hoody with the child’s surname.

All Year 11 students have the opportunity to purchase a hoody. The cost will be £23.50.

Hoodies are available in a range of different sizes; the sample hoodies are making their way around registration groups and students are choosing the size which they would like.

It is essential that the order is placed in plenty of time so we don’t miss out. There will only be one order sent to Parade; this will be done on Wednesday 2 March 2022. Students will not be able to place orders after this date and payment must have been received via Parent Pay by 3.30pm on Monday 28 February if their hoody is to be included in our order.

Please note that the purchase of a hoody is not compulsory but is voluntary, so if your child does not choose to order, or your payment isn’t received by the date given above you will not receive one.

We cannot stress this deadline enough, as we do not want anyone to be disappointed. The school will not be ordering any spare hoodies or placing any further orders.

Yours faithfully


Miss L Hood
