Why do I need to register to be able to buy products on your website?
As well as making the checkout process a lot simpler and quicker, registering also allows us to provide you with information regarding schools you or your children are associated with (for example school visit selling dates) or promotions we are running in store. You have the option to opt out of emails via the 'My Account' section of our website. We will never pass any of your details onto a third party.
The website says that I 'do not have sufficient permission to access' my Childs school uniform, why?
During the registration process you are given the option to register for up to 3 schools. If the school you are trying to access is not selected, you will not be able to view it. You are able to add and remove schools in the 'My Account' section of our website.
Some of the items are missing from my parcel and the order sheet says the item is 'Out of Stock', what happens next?
Our website allows you to purchase items that are not currently in stock. You will be placed on back order for the item and it will be dispatched to you as soon as it comes back into stock. With both Next Day Delivery orders and Click & Collect orders you will receive an email to inform you when an item is out of stock and when it comes back into stock.
Why has payment been taken for my Out of Stock item?
This guarantees that the item is reserved for you to have as soon as it comes back into stock, without any delay. If you wish to cancel the item(s) and request a refund, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 020 8680 4555 to let us know.

How can I print a Price List for my school?
Whilst on your desired schools homepage, you will have an option on the menu to 'Download Price List'. This will give you the option to open a PDF Price List and also view any other documents relevant to the school that you are able to print.
How can I add or change the School(s) I have selected during registration?
Go to 'My Account' and select the 'Add Schools' tab. You will be able to add up to three of our schools to your account.
I cannot find my school on the list of schools, why?
We only list schools that we provide uniform for. If your desired school is not on our list we would advise contacting your school to find out your uniform provider
How do I know what sizes to choose when placing an order?
As well as a size guide located in the website footer, you will also find a more specific size guide in the Product Description tab whilst looking at a product, where possible. These sizes are based on the average measurements for a set age group, if a child is outside of the average for their age group you may need to measure them to get the correct sizing.
