Measurement Guide

Choosing school clothes

  • Measure your child before you place your order. Please use the measuring chart below.
  • Our products are sized in Imperial Measurements.
  • Unless otherwise stated our sizes refer to neck (boys shirts), chest (other tops & blazers) and waist (skirts & trousers) measurments in inches.
  • 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 name tapes well in advance (these can often take around 2 weeks to arrive) so you'll have time to sew them on before the beginning of Term.
  • Purchase your uniform as early as you can, especially if you need clothes to be altered or made to order.
  • Ask for advice. Our expert staff will be happy to talk to you about a child's individual needs.
