The Schoolwear Association




Valentino Schoolwear are proud members of The Schoolwear Association both as a company and also in the form of our company directors being on the committee of The Schoolwear Association.


The Schoolwear Association promotes the benefits of school specific uniform to schools, students and parents. We believe that a distinctive uniform aids a sense of belonging and is good for security in and out of school. Students who wear school specific uniform are said to behave better, have better attendance and potentially achieve more academically.


The Schoolwear Association represents all those involved in the supply of school specific uniform - retailers, direct to school suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers, decorators, agents and schools.

Together, the members of The Schoolwear Association clothe three quarters of Britain’s school children.

The committee is made up of many people from across the whole industry who give their time voluntarily and share a passion for what we do.
