School Children

The competition between high street retailers for the best school uniform offers is well and truly on, and the cheapest price points don’t mean the poorest quality either. New quality updates from all retailers allow for every lunchtime spill, playground scuffle and every inch they grow, and if you’re unsatisfied, many retailers offer a no quibble guarantee for anything between 60 to 200 days.

Girl's school uniform

Trawl the high street and supermarkets and you’ll find that you can stock up on unisex polo shirts from as little as £1.00 to £1.25 for a single pack or between £2.00 to £2.50 for a pack of two. A pair of trousers or a woven pleated skirt can be purchased for the bargain price of £3.00 and school shoes for boys and girls can be scooped up for as little as £8.00, while sports shoes are available for £2.50.
