Crested School Wear: Your one stop shop for back to school essentials

Here at Victorian Arcade, we are well known for offering an abundance of quirky, independent retailers. Crested School Wear, a school wear specialist located in the heart of our centre, has been supplying uniforms for local school children for over 15 years.
With the end of the school holidays drawing closer, Crested School Wear is Walsall's one stop shop for all things uniform: from polos to blouses and skirts to pinafores, they've got it all.

Back to school

With the children going back to school in the next few weeks, we appreciate that shopping for new school uniform can often be a tedious and tiresome task. Crested School Wear aim to make the whole experience as stress free as it can possibly be and below they share their top tips to a smooth and stress-free school shopping experience:

When to buy

Start about three weeks before term starts, if you start much earlier the little ones might have an unexpected growth spurt and if you start much later some stores might have less choice or a particular item might be out of stock in your child's size. If you find you haven't bought enough, you'll still be able to find extras throughout the academic year but it might well mean going online.

Crested School Wear aims to ensure stock is always available for the 150 schools it supplies. However, with such a demand at the end of the summer holidays it can often become harder to find the correct size for your child, which is why starting earlier is always better.

How much of everything do you need?

Crested School Wear has put together a handy list of what they think is the ideal quantities of uniform for a new term.
•    Polos or shirts – 4 or 5 
•    Jumpers or cardigans – 3
•    Trousers or skirts – 3
•    Socks – 5 pairs
•    School shoes – 1 pair
•    Regulation book bag – This is not always required, check the uniform list.

By sticking to the above list you should find there isn't a mad Friday morning rush when you realise there is no clean washing at 8am.

When it comes to uniform, Crested School Wear is one of the highest quality school uniform suppliers in Staffordshire. With years of experience in dealing with schools and parents, they've got what it takes to make sure you're ready for the new school year.
