We want your uniform to look good and to last but it does need a little help to stay this way!

Did you know that Suppliers do not recommend fabric softener is used at all on 100% knitwear as it clings to the fibres increasing the weight of the garment resulting in the ribbing around the neck separating from the garment, seams coming away and holes?

Did you know that shrinkage is commonly caused by overheating in the washing machine or tumble drier particularly on 100% cotton garments?

Did you know that ironing at temperatures that are too high can cause unsightly shine marks on matt fabrics such as sweatshirts? All manmade fibres are vulnerable to high heat. Ideally iron garments inside out.

Did you know that excess heat from tumble drying and or ironing causes puckering particularly around the badge and the ribbing? Where possible, garments should be washed, dried and ironed inside out.

Did you know that using fabric softener on sweatshirts and cardigans can cause bobbling and drains the colour? To keep your primary uniform looking its best for as long as possible, we do not recommend adding fabric softener to your wash.

Did you know that our blazers, skirts and trousers are made from recycled bottles as A Class Apart supports ethical and eco friendly suppliers? This does mean that some items don’t need to be ironed due to the garment consistency.

Do you know your care symbols?

machine wash up to 30 degrees. Hand wash cold. Cool Iron. Do not bleach. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean. Hang dry. Dry Flat.

How it works:

For every pound you spend you will receive 1 point. So, for example if you buy a bundle for £145, you’ll receive 145 points.

Each point is worth 1p, meaning you’ll have £1.45 to redeem against your next purchase, or just let them accumulate until you have enough points for that purchase of your choice!

Points will be allocated to your account once the goods have been dispatched.

Points can be used as partial or full payment for orders at a rate of 1 point = 1 pence.
