For 100% cotton a hot wash with bio powder is fine, but most school shirts are a poly/cotton mix and washing above 40° will make them go grey as polyester greys with heat.

Twice the usual amount of bio powder (aldis tested better than Persil when which? Tested them).

60c wash.

Do NOT press the quickwash/rapid wash button.

Put the powder in the drum, not the drawer.

Et voila. White whites.

Bio powder not liquid and only wash with other whites. Dry outside if you can.

dh has white shirts and to keep them white I always wash them with other whites, I use bio powder and a scoop of Vanish oxi action crystal white.
