School Uniform Shop

You can buy all uniform, with the logo on, from Top Form in The Stow, Harlow.

90-91 The Stow,
CM20 3AP

Tel:01279 434813

Use sew in or iron on name labels in EVERYTHING! 30 red sweatshirts look the same and often pen becomes illegible or wears off after a few washes!

If your child is in Reception or Year 1, find out which days your child has PE so you can make sure your child is wearing clothes that are easy to get off and back on. Also, buy shoes with Velcro straps until your child is confident doing buckles for laces.

How much uniform to buy?

Many parents have asked for guidance on this.  Questions to ask;

  1. How messy are your children?
  2. How often do you wash?

We’d recommend having at least;

  • 4 polo shirts
  • 2 pairs of trousers/skirts/dresses
  • 2 sweatshirts/cardigans
  • PE kits – 1 set is usually enough as children keep them in school and they only come home for washing at the end of each half term.
