CJ’s Uniform and Hair Information: for Examinations

Please see below for more information about what your child will need to wear for different examinations at CJ’s.

Payment can be made by cash, cheque or by BACs, we would prefer payment at the time of ordering please. (Please note: if any items need to be returned because of a sizing issue, please ensure all items are unworn and in the complete and original packaging).
