Uniform, Kit & Equipment Discounts

We offer eligible students discounts off their college uniform, kit and essential equipment.

Unless you need to wear a uniform or specialist PPE (Protective Personal Equipment) as part of your chosen course, you can wear whatever you like to college.

But if you do need to buy uniform, sports kit or any specialist equipment or clothing – which you will have been told about at your interview – we offer eligible students some tasty discounts

Household Income £16,190 or below = 75% Discount
Household Income £16,191- £25,000 = 50% Discount
Household Income £25,001-£30,000 = 25% Discount
Household Income £30,001 or above = 0% Discount

These benefits are means tested and only are available to all full time students aged 16 to 18 on 31st August; and all students aged 16 to 25 on that date if they have a statement of special educational needs. No benefit costs are transferable and no cash equivalents are available.


If you have any questions or want to check your eligibility, please call Student Services on 0191 518 8222.
