Different Class is based in Bourne End, Bucks and supplies school uniforms to schools and parents throughout south east England.
Our team are very experienced and we work with all the main manufacturer brands to provide the best combination for each school. Our buying power with these brands is very strong and so we are able to pass on the most competitive pricing available to schools and parents.
We can offer all garments embroidered or printed and we operate the latest Embroidery and DTG (Direct To Garment) print technology in house for total flexibility.
We have been a leader in supplying school uniforms for nearly 25 years. We pride ourselves on offering a truly personal service based on the needs of each individual school. We partner with a wide range of state and independent schools from infant through to sixth form colleges and we ensure that each one receives individual attention throughout the year.
We do see the provision of uniform as a partnership between ourselves and our schools and the method of supply can be tailored to fit individual requirements. We have a world class eCommerce solution through this website and we can also supply through the school, direct into parents or set up and manage a shop within the school itself.
In addition to a complete range of specialist school uniform and sports kit, Different Class offer a wide range of supplies for pupils ranging from geometry sets to gum shields and swimming goggles to stationery.
Our customer service team are legendary in their response to queries and our Customersure system allows us to monitor and address every query .
We have several methods of supply:
Many schools are now moving to this method of supply
Through our World class eCommerce websites we offer one of the most comprehensive services to parents directly. Many schools have decided to pass on the administration of uniform management to us and have been extremely impressed with the smooth and trouble-free transition.
We will buy all current stock from either the school or the existing supplier and then ensure that we always keep sufficient available for the parents’ needs. The eCommerce site is secure but very easy to use and feedback from parents in recent years has been tremendous.
We offer delivery directly to parent’s homes via a weekly delivery to the school. Each order is individually packaged ready for collection.
The school needs to take no financial involvement but will always have complete control over the specification of the ranges offered.
Different Class will provide a complete service for schools to run their own shops if they wish. Offering trade rates, the schools will be able to operate with sufficient margin to support their own enterprise with Different Class ensuring that deliveries are made in a timely and controlled way.
Alternatively Different Class will stock uniform at its warehouse to enable parents to leave order forms and payment at the school for collection the following week.
At key dates such as parents’ evenings and inductions, Different Class will set up a ‘Pop Up Shop’ on school premises. This will be staffed by the Different Class team who will be on hand to give expert advice to parents and allow pupils to try on uniforms for size. They can then make payment at the time or buy online later.
If the school would like a uniform shop on the premises then Different Class can arrange to set it up and staff it at agreed times.
Some schools have asked for a combination approach of the above options – particularly with different items. So if your school has particular needs then talk to us about how we can achieve them. You won’t be disappointed!
