Customer Service
The School Shop has a suggestion, complaint or compliment book. Please use this to provide feedback and please encourage others to do so too. It helps to know what issues need attention and if you’ve experienced good service, it gives the staff a boost.

The School Shop also runs an order book. Should you require any item that is not in stock, please ensure that your request, together with your or your child’s name, is entered in the order book. If this information is not entered in the order book, it will be assumed there is no back-order.

The Bishops Shop opened its doors on 25th September 2001. This important initiative was in response to continuous pressure from parents and staff following the need for improved service and convenience for parents in the procurement of school uniform, other school clothing, sports equipment and general items of use.

The School Shop also stocks the uniforms of Western Province Prep School, Micklefield and Herschel Girls.

The Shop has agreements with the schools to sell all branded items and a range of products including:

  • All new uniforms and clothing
  • Sports clothing and equipment
  • Memorabilia, Supporters Kit, Branded gifts etc
  • Swimwear, towels, tog-bags and kit-bags
  • All touring team or group’s merchandise
  • Other items eg. tennis balls, grips, every day sporting accessories, school stationery
  • Bishops College second-hand items

Bishops has an agreement with The Shop that includes a market related rental for the premises they occupy and a 25% share in the net profit of the shop. All such funds received are placed in the Bishops Scholarships and Bursaries Fund, administered by the College Council Investment Committee. The agreement between Bishops and The Shop has been reviewed and renewed several times over the years. The governed cost price mark-up, the overall pricing policy and the competitive selling prices offered by The Shop are monitored quarterly by the Bishops Business Manager.

The Shop provides us with one of the most convenient and pleasurable school shopping services that one may encounter. We know this to be true because we have visited many and we are the envy of almost all schools.

We look forward to a long and happy relationship with The School Shop.
