The School Uniform Specialists reserves the right to change prices in the general online catalogue and to do so without notice. Prices are quoted inclusive of VAT.

All school uniform deliveries despatched directly from The School Uniform Specialists will be delivered by Royal Mail or by DPD courier on a tracked service.
If you have requested delivery to a home address your order will be despatched within 2 working days (subject to stock availability). Please note if the order is short of an item (especially during the summer holidays (July, August & early September) we may wait until the order is fully complete before despatching the whole order – you will be notified if this is happening once the order has been processed).
If you have requested delivery to the school (please note this is not applicable to all schools), your order will be despatched during the next school delivery (delivered on Wednesday/Thursday each week – please note your order must have been placed by Monday 3pm for the order to be processed in time for the school delivery that week).
Duty Payments on Internation Deliveries
Products delivered to some destinations, mainly outside the EU, may be subject to taxes, fees, levies or other charges, which are imposed by local legislation. The recipient of the products is responsible for all customs formalities for their export and import, and will be required to pay any additional charges, including import duty, formal customs entry, taxes, levies and other charges. The recipient of the goods, not the person who's ordered them, will receive a separate request for payment of these charges.
If you're ordering products to be delivered to someone else, please make sure they're aware they'll be responsible for these additional charges. Unfortunately we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, so we're unable to offer any assistance on these processes. We'd advise that you check the import charges applicable in any country before ordering products to be delivered there.
The School Uniform Specialists are not liable in any way for any failure or delay in supply or delivery or for any damage or defect to goods supplied or delivered that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond its control.

Notwithstanding the above, all online orders are to be paid by debit / credit card at the moment of confirmation of order.
The School Uniform Specialists may agree to give credit to certain Schools / colleges. This will be agreed on a case by case basis. We reserve the right to withdraw the credit if the school / college does not respect the agreed payment terms.
