Supermarkets:

Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury & Morrison are the four main supermarkets that stock the basic school uniform items.  They all currently provide sweatshirts in royal blue as well as blue gingham dresses for the summer months. Asda sell the bottle green PE tops.

Aldi & Lidl run seasonal promotions for uniform.

Matalan also stock basic school uniform items which can include royal blue sweatshirts.

You can purchase school uniform online at Amazon who also sell the bottle green PE tops that not all supermarkets have.

All of these items are not embroidered and are therefore a cheaper alternative.
