Back to school collection

  • 3,485 is the estimated average cost of school uniforms for a child over the course or their school life (Reception to Year 11).
  • The cost is equivalent to 4.31 months’ of a mortgage repayment or 3.31 months’ of average rent, although there are substantial regional variations.
  • Across the North East and Yorkshire and the Humber, the total cost of kitting out a child is more than eight times an average monthly mortgage repayment, while across London the cost of two months’ rent is on par with school uniform costs.
  • Across the country, 8.4 million children are predicted to return to primary or secondary school this week, a total uniform bill in the region of £2.4 billion.
