Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
How do I get the right size of uniform? A full sizing guide is on the website, please use this. We have also found that when buying High School uniform, parents should check the size of blazer needed using the sizing guide and then buy a one size bigger for the jumper. So, if the blazer needed is 35 inches, the jumper should be 36 inches.
