Established in 1989, School Days Direct is a local supplier of school uniform, workwear, on-site embroidery and printing services. Their belief in excellent quality, outstanding service and affordable prices all year round has seen them become one of the leading suppliers of schoolwear in the area – supplying over 90 schools, academies and independent establishments across Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.

In order to constantly meet the changing demands of the schoolwear industry and to continue building their business alongside the retail store in Taplow, School Days Direct asked Kehorne to help.

Having initially created their website and first online shop in 2015, Kehorne were tasked with developing their “direct-to-school” offering – creating a new website and secure shopping platform that would enable them to grow their current online shop from 8 to 42 schools in phase one. The new site also needed to be a showcase for their workwear and corporate products, embroidery service, club and association uniform and personalised gifts.

With a new company logo and refreshed branding, the new School Days Direct website was launched in October 2019 and now offers an easy online ordering portal for parents and showcases their extensive product range. Kehorne were responsible for scoping and developing all technical aspects of the site together with project managing a complex number of bespoke elements that were necessary for order processing – as well as providing training support and resources for the retail team responsible for maintaining the site.

Technical Details

The site is built on WordPress with WooCommerce to handle the ecommerce aspect of the site. The site uses a bespoke heavily customised theme and is fully responsive for mobile, tablet and desktop. The site is hosted on our own server and is maintained and updated on an ongoing basis by our Support team.

“Last year we decided to update our website with Kehorne to allow us to increase our online sales whilst making the purchasing process faster, easier and clearer for our customers. We were also looking to give our website a fresh, clean, and more modern feel. We are absolutely delighted with the outcome of our new site and we have had many positive comments from our schools about it. Our new site has increased our ability for online sales and we are extremely proud of the new design. We have worked alongside Kehorne for over ten years and we would highly recommend their services. They clearly understood what we were looking for and interpreted our brief precisely. David, Lisa and the team are a pleasure to work with and we are grateful for their hard work and continued support”.
