Q: Do I need to make an Appointment to shop instore?

Up to 14th August: Our appointment period ends. We are open on a first come first served basis. We recommend you come at your earliest convenience as we will become busier as we get closer to schools returning.
Q: How do I know which size to order?
If your child is starting a new school for the first time, we recommend you bring them in for a proper uniform fitting, so you get the right sizes there and then.
It is difficult to guess sizes the first time around, which is why we recommend shopping instore to have a smooth experience.
If you prefer to order online, we recommend you measure your child’s chest and waist in inches.
Feel free to watch our size guide video to assist you with the best way to measure:
We have a tape measure you can download and print off:
Q: I ordered something a few weeks ago. How will I know when it is ready for collection?
You will receive a confirmation email or text when your order is ready for collection. Please keep an eye on your junk folder in case the email slips in there.

Please allow 2/3 working days to receive your order, subject to all items being in stock.
If an item is not in stock, we shall inform you.

Q: When will the Delivery to School service start
Our delivery to school service will recommence from the week commencing 11th September and is available during term time.
Q: I ordered from one branch; can I return the item to another branch?
It is quicker to receive a refund when you return the item to the branch(es) that stocks your child’s school uniform. If easier for you to drop the item off to a different branch, please do so with the returns form completed or the receipt and a note, including your contact details, that you would like a refund.
We will deliver the item to the relevant store, and they will process your refund.
Please allow 2/3 working days for this to take place.
Q: Personalisation Timeframe
Personalisation of an item (paint aprons, t-shirts, shoe bags, PE Kit) takes approximately 4 weeks.
Please note that once we personalise the items with your child’s name you cannot return these items. Therefore, it is best to try them first to check you are happy with the fit.
Alternatively, items can be returned during October half term for personalisation at a later date – when the turnaround time will be approximately 2 weeks.
Q: Return Details
Any online order can be returned by post or in person.
If you return by post, simply return the item(s) in a bag/packaging to the store within 60 days of purchase ensuring the return is in a resaleable condition with its tags intact.
The address is on the paperwork. Please return this with the original returns form.
The refund will automatically be processed back to the card used to make the purchase.
Please note we are unable to accept the following items back once they are removed from the packaging: shirts, blouses, socks and tights.
We hope you enjoy your shopping experience with us.
