It’s that time of the year again when you need to get new school uniforms sorted again. It hardly seems a year ago since we were going through this process, but here we are again!
We all remember when we were school age, the dread that filled us when it came to the end of the summer holidays and we started seeing the adverts for going back to school! Summer is over.
Since Brexit and Covid-19, everything appears to be constantly rising in price and that includes the price of fitting out school children with their uniforms and sports equipment, etc.
Paying For School Uniforms
Great if you can just go out and pay outright for the new school uniforms, but not everyone is in that position unfortunately. You may look to your credit card to make the purchases, but just make sure you can pay the balance off in full next month, otherwise interest and maybe compound interest may start accruing if you are not able to. Double check your card’s interest rate in case you need a few months to pay it off.
There is an online shopping company that provide some school uniform articles called Studio and their prices are very competitive and worth a look.
There is a Short Term Financing Loans company that we have featured before that will bring you the cash loan to your door when approved and you can check if you are in their catchment area.
You can also apply for an unsecured personal loan by clicking on the “Apply Here” banner to be taken to the application page.
Financial Help With School Uniforms
There is also some help available with purchasing school uniforms and you can contact these sources by clicking on the links below:
- Credit Unions can help spread the cost of lump sum purchases
- Government help with uniforms and sports kit in various regions of the UK
- Social Welfare payments are also available and details are shown on the Citizens Advice website
We hope you get things sorted soon.
