School Uniform

How many ‘sets’ do you buy?


I’ve left it really late to get my son his uniform. They go back on the 15th, so two weeks exactly today!

I need to get him to try on the trousers and shirts I bought near the end of last year and see if they still fit or if like, i suspect; he’s taken a growth spurt.

I’ve been thinking along the lines of 1 for each day of the week, but I don’t feel that clothes should be washed after every wear. (taking laundry into consideration – i wash most wednesdays and sundays for school clothes) Maybe 3 sets of polo shirts, jumpers and trousers, and also get single shirts in 2 or 3 sizes, as he needs to wear them only a handful of times throughout the year. May as well buy them whilst deals are on them.

Here is my list of essentails for school.

  • Waterproof jacket
  • 2 red sports jumpers
  • 1 school branded red jumper
  • 2 white polo shirts
  • 2 school branded polo jumpers
  • 3 pairs of grey trousers
  • 1 shirt
  • 1 school tie
  • grey socks
  • pants
  • P.E. kit – red shorts, t-shirt
  • Plimsoles
  • school shoes
  • school bag

Now to find out the prices locally.
