About us

The Schoolwear Shop Ltd is a family owned business located at 40 - 42 Abington Square on the edge of Northampton town centre.  It is a large one-stop uniform store selling embroidered school uniforms for 40 + Northampton Primary and Senior Schools on contract, with a large stock of all garments in all sizes being held throughout the year.  The shop caters for all school day needs by offering a vast range of products including general wear:- trousers, skirts, pinafores, sportswear, plimsolls, book and gym bags, educational toys, stationery, lunch bags and bottles, rucksacks and the hugely popular range of Activity wear from the Guide and Scout Associations (Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts).  The shop also accepts bulk direct supply orders for uniforms for schools and various clubs, societies and businesses.

All the embroidery of uniforms is performed in-house, and the large stock of plain garments enables embroidery top-ups to be done very quickly with little delay as and when required.  The large stock holding means we are normally able to cater quickly for any children who are smaller or larger than average by embroidering a plain garment of a size which may not be routinely held for one of our schools.

We are a member in good standing within The Schoolwear Association and subscribe to its code of ethical practices.  The garments we use are from a select few suppliers and manufacturers in the country whose emphasis is quality, durability and smartness of school and sportswear.
