George’s Favourite School Uniform Staples

Back to school seems to come around faster every year. While the new term allows your kids to reunite with school friends and start exciting projects, it also means that the dreaded school uniform shopping trip is now unavoidable.

Luckily, we’re here to make the annual school stock up a breeze with our affordable, comfortable and durable collection. From stain-resistant shirts to school skirts, trousers and school shoes for boys and girls, our budget-friendly range will make getting ready for school as easy as A, B, C.

School Uniform: The Basics

Thankfully, most schools send out a list of uniform requirements before term starts, so there’s no need to panic about buying the right gear. Schools might have different colour schemes, but the same items seem to appear on every list.

As well as school skirts and trousers, one piece of uniform you’ll definitely need to stock up on is school shirts. Whether your child needs red, blue, green or yellow shirts, our wide range of polo shirts are sure to have you covered.

Plus, parents with adventurous children can rejoice because our shirts come with fabric protecting technology to encourage easy stain removal. Phew!

Stay Smart School Shoes

When your children are in primary school, it can feel like you’re forever buying them new pairs of school shoes. For this reason, sourcing a good-value pair is a must. After all, costs can quickly add up!

Sports Ready

It might often get left till the end of the trip, but making sure your child has a well-fitting and comfy P.E. kit is as essential as stocking up on their day-to-day uniform.

After stocking up on all your school uniform essentials, you get to move onto the fun part: the little extras. From buying a new backpack and lunchbox to discovering a colourful pencil case, kids love putting an individual stamp on their uniform. These exciting buys are also a great way to perk up your child if they’re becoming restless.
