Thankfully, high-street supermarkets are hoping to reduce this expense by offering staple items for cheap prices.
Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Morrisons, Aldi, Lidl and Asda have all released their back to school uniform ranges and we’ve done a comparison.
We’ve added up the total price of two polo shirts, one pair of trousers, a skirt and a jumper for each supermarket to see which is the cheapest.
Total price: £10.84.
The full school uniform range can be seen below, with links to buy online.
