School Uniform

Our school uniform provider Emblematic have opened a new self-service shop in Bedlington.

The new Emblematic branch will be open six days a week during the school summer holidays. The second self-service shop will be open from 12pm-5pm Wednesdays and 10am-4pm Saturdays during winter, while extended opening hours will provide much-needed relief on the existing Emblematic store on the North Tyneside Industrial Estate during the busy summer period, improving convenience and reduce waiting times.

Our uniforms can only be purchased through the Bedlington store. You can order online or purchase in-store.

The address of the new store is:
Emblematic (Bedlington)
30 Glebe Road
NE22 6JT

More information can be found on their website.
