Looking for a Schoolwear Supplier?

A family-run business since its establishment in Sevenoaks, Kent in 1888, Horncastles is synonymous with supplying high quality schoolwear and sportswear at competitive prices.

Our company was built on providing excellent customer service and we’re proud to say that is still the case today. Our personal service to both customers and schools alike is unparalleled.

Our Approach and Service

We understand each school is different, so we like to take a flexible approach and tailor our services to each individual school’s needs.

We take the time to find out your exact needs and school values in order to deliver uniform and sportswear that is truly reflective of each individual school.

All consultations are free of charge and so are our samples.

Our Expertise

We work with and source our uniforms from the leading UK suppliers. Our extensive knowledge of schoolwear and sportswear not only means that we can help schools source garments, particular yarns, and dyes, but we can also help schools design new uniform and sportwear.

Our extensive network of suppliers and manufacturers means we can outfit schools with uniform that is not only high quality and competitively priced, but that it is also reflective of each individual school’s values.

Whether you’re looking to bring onboard a school outfitter that can supply the full uniform or just schoolwear or sportswear, we have the knowledge and expertise to help make the transition and implementation as smooth and easy as possible.

We hold a high level of inventory to ensure we offer parents schoolwear and sportswear when and where they need it.

Ethical and Sustainable

Our garments are ethically sourced, and we work closely with suppliers to continuously find new and innovative sustainable processes in garment manufacturing and making.

A number of our garments are made using recycled plastic bottles.

Servicing Parents


We offer unrivalled personal service to our parents as we understand buying uniform can be quite daunting.

We offer one-on-one customer service in store where we can help parents with measuring and kitting out their children and guiding them through the uniform list.


However, we also appreciate that for some, buying uniform online is the more convenient option and our brand new and updated website couldn’t make shopping online any easier. Our website offers full uniform lists for each school, a Measuring Guide and Size Charts to make the online shopping experience as easy and user friendly as possible. We also offer a Garment Care Guide and a handy FAQs page so that customers can access everything they need in one place.

By Phone and Email:

Our customers are also able to contact us by phone or email should they have any queries or need any help with any aspect of schoolwear and sportwear purchasing.

Pop-Up Events and School Shops:

We also offer Pop-Up events in schools and can offer working from School Shops on-site should this be of interest to you. Many of our parents take advantage of the Pop-Up events in schools that we currently offer as well as our yearly 5% discount that we run during the summer.
