Our vision is for all children to wear a smart school uniform. We know that school uniform is a great leveller and is often a source of pride in a school and creates a sense of belonging and we are very proud to play a small, but important, part in that chain.

We have provided, through the independent retailer, generations of school children with handmade-quality British manufactured ties and we believe now, more than ever, UK made is a badge of quality, ethics, speed and service.

Established in 1969, William Turner specialises in producing premium quality school ties and accessories. Stocking the widest range of stock ties in the UK, we have also expanded our product offering over the years to meet the changing needs of schools and school children with an exceptional variety of bags, craftwear, winterwear, hair accessories, water-bottles and accessories.

The William Turner brand represents consistency and a proven pedigree. Building on that proud heritage, we continue to evolve to take on the challenges of a rapidly changing world. With this in mind, our sights are firmly focussed on making our business ‘Fit for the Future’.

Investing in new factories, technology and great people are all part of our commitment to you.

Maybe most importantly of all, we’re getting greener. We’re focussed on the environment and committed to a sustainable future fit for all. We’re on a journey to become a more eco-friendly business. We’ve recently launched our very own ‘Green Manifesto’ which elaborates on our aims to improve the way we work for the good of the environment. We’re also excited to offer you a range of special Eco-products.

We are also proud of our high ethical standards, especially when it comes to working with our overseas partners. Our partner factory in China manufactures solely for William Turner. We visit several times a year to ensure that our high standards are always adhered to, so you can have every confidence in your supply chain. We are a proud founder member of the Schoolwear Association as we believe that we are stronger together and as an industry have a lot to shout about.

We wish you continued success and look forward to being your trusted partner for schoolwear accessories for many years to come.

William Turner – your schoolwear accessories partner – Fit for the Future.
