Size Guide

Preparation for buying in-store

  • Measure your child beforehand, using the measuring chart below
  • Remember to bring a list of all the school's requirements with you.
  • Choose machine washable, minimum-iron clothes and good quality fabrics, so that clothes last longer and are easy to launder
  • Allow for growth - when you're buying shirts, make sure you can fit two fingers inside the fastened collar
  • Buy 3 - 5 blouses or shirts, depending on how often you do the washing during the week
  • Order embroidered name tapes well in advance, so you'll have time to sew them on before the beginning of term
  • Please don't leave things till the last minute
  • Good quality school clothes will give you years of wear, so buy for value, don't economise on quality
  • Ask for advice. Our expert staff will be happy to talk to you about a child's individual needs
