As Back to School is going to head around the corner faster than we can say Summer Holidays I thought I would do a quick round up of school uniform prices from the High Street and Supermarkets. Each year the prices get more competitive as each shop fights for our custom at this costly time of the year. I have two new uniforms to buy this year and so I have been on the look out for what is on offer and what the prices are like.

George at Asda

Offering free delivery on school wear when you spend £25 or more, just add code BTS2014 at checkout.

Trousers prices start from just £1.75 for a pair of basic boys school trousers. Girls trousers start at £3 with their jersey bow trousers and both boys and girls trousers are available in grey, black, navy and dark grey. Not all colours are available on all styles of trouser. I particularly like the reinforced knee trouser for boys which feature a reinforced inner patch on the knee for extra durability. These can be found here;

I had a quick look in my local store the other day and I liked the feel of the boys school trousers compared to others and I will probably be doing my school wear shopping at Sainsburys. I have had a quick look online and although their Tu range isn't available online you can go and have a look at some selected pieces that they show for reference.
