With an entrenched reputation for excellence – our uniform experts and hand-picked suppliers are the best in the business. We understand the importance, complexity and competing demands of a well put-together uniform.
Schools and universities want quality design, fabrics and production as well as positive brand recognition. Students and parents need value, durability and low maintenance – they want attractive, comfortable and fit-for-function options. Bringing these imperatives together is what The School Locker does best.

In addition to our high-quality range we can also provide the added convenience of buying uniform items and apparel online or at one of The School Locker superstores – all of which flows back to our partner schools and universities as part of our unique revenue-sharing agreement
Our revenue sharing model and Student Advantage Membership provides direct financial benefits for schools and universities.
Our revenue sharing program offers partner schools and universities an ongoing income based on the value of purchases made by their students in a campus store, in one of our retail superstores or online. The revenue sharing program applies to all product categories – uniforms and branded apparel, stationery, technology, sports equipment, musical instruments and accessories, footwear and non-branded apparel. Our extensive product range offers our partners the opportunity to increase the value of this income stream
Partner schools and universities receive a monthly revenue statement, which breaks down all sales attributed to the school or university by category, as well as the total amount payable. Revenue is deposited into a nominated bank account
To boost this return we issue the students at each partner school or university with a Student Advantage Membership. This connects student purchases to their institution. Student Advantage Membership is recognised in all our stores and qualifies students for discounted educational pricing on technology purchases as well as providing access to a range of product specials. School students are issued with a Student Advantage Membership card. Universitiy students can simple use their university student card.
If your organisation would like to take advantage of our buying power, we can develop and arrange the manufacture of your uniforms or branded apparel to be purchased at wholesale prices. The School Locker can offer direct supply solutions across all our categories including bulk purchases of technology, musical instruments and sporting equipment.
