It’s not only students that represent a school – staff need to feel and look the part too. We provide everything from smart corporate wear to practical and durable caretaker and site-staff clothing. Aprons and tabards are perfect for catering staff and lab coats and coveralls for technicians and teachers of practical subjects. PE, Music & Drama Departments often benefit from personalised clothing, particularly as they are likely to travel off-site with their subjects. House Leaders may want to wear their House colours for activities and assemblies. Hi-Vis garments prove useful for staff as they can be seen and recognised easily and fleece or waterproof jackets provide protection from the elements during outdoor duties or activities. Take a look at our full clothing catalogue online or speak to a member of staff today for inspiration. All garments can have the school logo and personalisation applied as required.

The journey to and from school in dull weather conditions, particularly in winter months, can be dangerous. Poor visibility can occur at any time of the year in the UK and ensuring our staff and students are safe should be top priority. High visibility schoolwear is the perfect accessory to your school’s uniform. In 2016, there were 23,550 pedestrian casualties in the UK, including 448 fatalities. 26% of these were aged 0-15 (source: https://www.gov.uk). Help reduce this number by making sure your staff and students are seen. Garments can be printed and your school’s logo can be applied, making them ideal for trips, bus-stop & playground duties and site staff.
