Gymslips, dresses and skirts can also be shortened.

Finally, you can stipulate a grosgrain ribbon braid to be added to your school blazer. The colour range is given along with each blazer. All you have to do is select the colour you require from the drop down menu.

Organising your alteration is easy!


My shop is entirely web based. I have no conventional high street premises. However I do understand that many clients do like to try before they buy. To that end I offer a bespoke home visit service. If you want to visit my home and try any of my schoolboy, schoolgirl, cub or scout uniform items then either email or call to arrange an appointment. You will find my details in the contacts section. Visits are STRICTLY by appointment only and will be arranged for a time that is convenient for both of us. To book an appointment to visit please give me a call on 01298 211135. I look forward to seeing you.


At the Albert Prendergast Facebook page you can leave your comments and feedback about our products and services. From time to time I will be posting there about new products that may be of interest to new and old customers.

I also run a very succesful eBay shop. In the shop you will find just about all the school uniform items that are available here. For those of you who would prefer to use eBay (Although I can't think why you would want to.) rather than this site then just click on the ebay logo opposite to be taken directly to my eBay home page.

The eBay shop has been running for over 15 years and has a considerable reputation as will be demonstrated by the 100% feedback record.


'Albert Prendergast' can also be found on Amazon. A limited range of my own brand products are currently available. Click on the Amazon logo opposite to be taken directly to my Amazon home page.
