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 First Names in full, Surname, Sex, Date of Birth, School, Year Group and House (if relevant). This is important as this data is used 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. Please bear in mind that if the details you have added exceed this, the text will be cut where the maximum number of characters is reached.
- Please enter your child´s measurements to enable our Intelligent Sizing to recommend the best sizes for your child.
- If you need to shop for more than one child, please enter their details by selecting "add another child".
- You will now have completed your homepage and can either commence shopping or edit your child's details.
- Only the garment(s) relevant to the School, Year Group and Sex of your child will be offered.
- To make a purchase, simply select the item required, view the recommended size and either choose this or use the drop-down size list to select an alternative size.
- When you have selected a size click 'add to basket'.
- When you have added the items you require to your basket you can view or amend these by clicking on the 'basket' icon at the top right corner of the screen. We will automatically calculate the correct number of name tags required for your order and add them to your basket. You can also add additional tags at this stage should you so wish. If you prefer not to have your items name tagged, you can remove the name tags from your basket at this stage. If you are happy with the items and wish to proceed to checkout then click the 'Go to checkout' button.
- If you have not shopped with us before you will be prompted to enter a shipping address on this page and when you have entered this the relevant delivery charge for your order will be displayed. Click 'Next' at the bottom of the page to proceed to payment.
- If you have shopped with us previously the default shipping address will automatically be shown. This can be amended by clicking 'Edit' and this will take you to an address book where you can add alternative addresses or amend an existing address. To amend the address to an existing address already in your address book, use the drop-down menu underneath the 'Ship my order to' or 'Invoice to' titles. The relevant delivery charge for your order is shown on this page.
- Please enter your payment card details in the fields shown.
- You will then be directed to a secure page where you will be asked to validate your payment card by entering your password.
- Please check the box confirming that you have read and understood our Terms and Conditions to proceed. Then click the "Confirm Order" button to process your order.
- When you have placed your order you will see an order confirmation page where you can view and print the details of your order, including your order number.
- We will then email you an order confirmation.

Please note that to reduce single use plastics, we are no longer supplying returns bags with our boxed orders. Small boxes and the re-useable bags can be used for your returns but please do not use the large boxes as the Post Office may not accept them due to size. We ask for your assistance in using your own packaging for your returns.
We do recommend that a proof of posting certificate is obtained from the Post Office as we are unable to accept responsibility for non-delivery of items returned to us.
