How To Shop
We believe that school uniform shopping should not be the chore that it is today, so we have developed this site with you, our customer, in mind. The site is designed to be as simple to navigate as possible, minimising the amount of data entry, allowing you to make your purchases with the minimum of fuss. However, we have prepared a brief guide video to show you how to best take advantage of our site:
In order to help you, here is a brief synopsis of the main pages:
- Please select 'New Parents Register Here'
- Please enter your name, email address, contact telephone number and a password.
- Please enter your child´s forenames in full, surname, date of birth, School, Year Group and House (if relevant). This is important as this data is used on the site to configure your child´s name tags.
- Name tags are preset in the format required by your registered School but they can be amended at this stage if required. The maximum number of characters allowed for name tags is 30, including spaces. If the details you have added exceed this, the tag details will be cut where the maximum number of characters is reached so please amend the tag details to ensure they are as required.
- Please enter your child´s measurements to enable our intelligent sizing to recommend sizes for your child.
- If you need to shop for more than one child, please enter their details by selecting "add another child".

- Only the garment(s) relevant to the gender, School and Year Group of your child will be offered.
