Couldn't find anything at Woolworths or Matalan. Adams don't have an online facility. I think I will try asking at the school where other people get their shorts from, though TBH, I haven't seen many boys wearing shorts. Funny that, as all the boys wore shorts at my children's last school.
I would be interested to know the price, but I did eventually manage to find some shorts yesterday: the school sell them (after all that searching!) for £4.75. I want(ed) age 6 and 8 although my boys are 7 and 9 but I find most sizes too big around the waist.
Aloha - I tried Ada and couldn't see anything appropriate. In fact, I had a bit of a moan to a complete stranger about how they had nothing I wanted and she moaned back along the same lines! What I did discover at the school yesteday though was that they sell odd bits f second hand uniform at £2 a go. A rip off for the shirts IMO but a bargain for the shorts/trousers/pinafores I thought. Lickily they had some second hand shorts for ds2 so I did rather well.
Alibubbles, I will keep you in mind if I struggle to find uniform again in September.
