On the hunt for new school uniform? George’s range has just been voted best value

It’s that time of year again to start thinking about your little darling’s school uniform. But as every parent knows, children grow up so fast and a combination of playground antics and classroom spillages means our kids really put their uniforms through their paces. But not to worry, George at Asda has come to the rescue! 

'The Playpennies followers have voted that Asda George provides that balance offering the best value for money school uniform that is both reasonably priced and of a good quality'

This year George’s range of school clothing features high quality improvements such as using viscose as well as polyester, 100 per cent quality cotton polo shirts and sweatshirts, plus introducing Teflon for durability (see how hard-wearing this makes t-shirts in the brilliant advert below!) and Lycra for a better fit. While this means plenty of positive changes for your little ones, families can rest assured that school uniform prices remain the same. What could be better than that?

And if you needed further proof, George has just been voted number one for value by leading UK parenting site, Playpennies. If you're wondering what that means in reality, think £2 school jumpers, a twin pack of polo shirts for £2.50 and trousers and skirts for only £3. What a steal! Check out the current £10 off deal that the Mirror newspaper is promoting to save you pennies - or leave you change for a treat yourself!

Karen McGinn, website manager for Playpennies and mother of one said, 'As parents, we all have to buy school uniform for our children and it's about finding that balance between budget and quality, so you’re not replacing items throughout the year.

George's 100 day guarantee working hard for parents

This latest accolade comes off the back of George's ongoing 100 day money back guarantee on uniforms. Translation? George at Asda is so confident in the quality of its school uniforms that it is making a commitment to fully refund customers during the first 100 days of the school term if they aren’t completely happy with it. 

Many shops will give store credit or money back within 30 days of purchase, but what to do when you want a real life test for your little one's clothing? Because the truth is that laboratory and factory testing doesn't account for all the tumbling, running, spilling and who-knows-what that happens in school and in the playground. That's why George are happy to give shoppers 100 days to try their school uniforms or they will refund the full cost. 

In an ASDA survey, 36 per cent of mums had said they had bought a school uniform and that they had been extremely disappointed with the quality. That’s no way to start the school year! Make sure you - and your children - are enjoying and thriving in their clothing with Asda’s 100 day money back guarantee on school uniforms.
