Why is the SA important to my School?

The Schoolwear Association was formed in 2006 to promote the benefits of school specific uniform and to establish strong standards in the supply chain of garments to parents and schools.

It can help schools on a number of issues and importantly it's members sign up to a code of conduct and commit to respect the wishes of the schools that they serve.

  • Strong communications

    The SA Committee is made up of a diverse group of people from across the whole industry with a passion for what we do. We give our time voluntarily and draw on our collective experience in the industry to strengthen our sector. We communicate all relevant issues to our members regularly.

    Our members sign up to a Code of Conduct which means that they adhere to high standards in the industry.

    Always check if your supplier is a member of the SA.
