Please make sure you have the correct measurements when purchasing your child's school uniform, this will avoid buying garments too big or too small. Please find information and "how to" videos below.
Garments: Blazers, Blouses, Polo Shirts, Sweatshirts, Jumpers, Cardigans, 1/4 Zip Tops & Rugby Shirts.
To take the chest measurement, position the tape close to your child's underarms, making sure you measure at the fullest part of the chest.
Be sure not to pull the tape too tight as this may result in the uniform being too small and uncomfortable.
Garments: Trousers, Skirts & Shorts.
To measure your child's waist, place the tape at the narrowest part of their torso, measuring their natural waistline.
Make sure the tape is snug and not too tight against their waist and they're not holding their breath.
To measure the collar, gently wrap the tape measure around the base of your child's neck, inserting two fingers between the neck and the tape. This is to allow growth and for a more comfortable fit.
SKIRT LENGTH MEASUREMENTS
Take the measurement down from your child's natural waist to the required position on the leg.
Please check your school's uniform requirements on skirt lengths to make sure your purchase complies with their guidelines.
INNER LEG MEASUREMENTS
Stretch the tape from the inside (crotch), down your child's inner leg to one inch above the ground. Remember to get your child to wear their school shoes, when measuring, for an accurate length measurement.
Make sure the tape is straight, not wrapping around the leg and not over stretched as this could result in purchasing trousers too short and uncomfortable.
Measure your child whilst they stand against a wall, in bare foot or socks, with their feet flat on the floor and the back of their heels against the wall.
Making sure they are looking forward, rest a pencil on the top of their head and make a light pencil mark on the wall. When they have moved away, take your tape and measure from bottom to top, making sure the tape is straight whilst doing so.
