Here's the lowdown on the best deals currently available if you want to get your kids kitted out ready for the new term.

Do let us know about any other bargain uniforms you spot, and chat about the quality of these items in the Cheap Uniform Deals discussion in the forum.

Note: Often stores sell items in multipacks and it isn't possible to buy them individually. When we quote prices in our headlines we take this into account and quote the cost of buying a full school uniform using multipacks.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links.
