Delivery & Collection Policy

During peak times we aim to despatch orders within 3-5 working days, and standard delivery can take up to 10 working days.

*Special Order items can take up to 21 days to be despatched. Please call for further information.

If you need your items in a hurry – we pride ourselves in being able to help. Please call our Sales Team on 01582 742460 and we will be able to check stock levels immediately for you and provided the item is in stock arrange delivery for the next day, and sometimes even the same day!!

We only despatch Monday to Friday so all delivery times are for working days only. Although we try and keep our stock levels and estimated despatch times as up to date as possible we do occasionaly run out of products unexpectedly. If this happens we will inform you of any delays as quickly as possible. If you have opted for our free School Drop delivery option and the item/s you have ordered are out of stock we will deliver them to school on the next applicable delivery slot.

Due to increasing card fraud - we will only be able to offer delivery to alternative addresses if the online forms are submitted correctly - we cannot accept verbal instructions to deliver to an address other than the registered cardholder address.

Some of our schools have arranged for a “School Drop” this is where we will make one delivery per week on a pre-arranged day to the school and your order will be delivered FREE for you or your child to collect. If your school is participating in this scheme you will be able to select the “School Delivery” option at the checkout stage. We can also arrange for returns to be processed in this way. Please Note: We do not deliver on the first or last week of term, or during school holidays.
