Our unique fitting service and supply of footwear began as a special request, 28 years ago, from the then Principal of the Emmanuel Schools Foundation’s flag ship Academy – Emmanuel College.
The sentiments from the Principal was that he wanted every child to be equal, to be given equal opportunities and for them to “shine” and “stand out” through their efforts, improvements and achievements, and not for the brand on their clothing.
After listening to the complaints and frustrations experienced by parents during Back To School periods, we realised that the High Street was not sufficiently meeting the requirements of their school Uniform.
We have subsequently taken these frustrations and complaints and have worked closely with the Foundation and have developed a range of footwear that meets with Uniform standards and is easily obtainable by parents.
We offer a “unique” fitting service which has been gratefully received by teachers, parents and pupils.
We invite all pupils to attend fitting sessions at their appropriate Academy throughout the summer holidays. There is ample, free parking; minimal waiting and an abundant supply of all sizes. All footwear is individually fitted by experienced shoe fitters and there is no worry about purchasing unsuitable footwear.
We also operate a “free” weekly delivery service to each Academy throughout term time to ensure that uniform requirements are always met.
As we developed and enhanced our service, our research told us that you, the parents, also want the convenience of shopping when you can, and from wherever you are, we have designed this site with you in mind.
If you are interested in your school being offered this service, please do not hesitate to contact us for details.
Members of the public can still experience a “visual” fitting – please refer to our size guide.
