What People Say

I have used Smarter Uniforms two years running to obtain uniform for my daughter- it's fantastic! Knowing that I am saving money and the environment is so fulfilling- a real 'win-win' solution and so important as an initiative. I wish all schools and areas had a local "Smarter Uniforms'. Thoroughly recommend.

Jo-Anne Godden

Great concept and well-executed. Good quality clothes for school children.

Debra Wade

For the last few years, it has been my go to place, to replace the countless items of ‘lost’ uniform and stock up on school sweatshirts or cardigans without breaking the bank. The quality of uniform is always good and there are generally plenty of sizes of the different items.  I have always been able to find what I am looking for and have been impressed by the organisation of the shop and the helpfulness of the staff.
