BISL is unique in Slovenia in that our students are required to wear school uniform

School uniform encourages a sense of unity and common purpose; a particularly important consideration as we endeavour to welcome students from a wide variety of countries and provide them with a true sense of belonging.

Uniform Update - January 2022

In an effort to provide sustainable and high-quality school uniform, we are delighted to have partnered with Trutex as our new School Uniform provider from January 2022.

Moving to Trutex means we are using a very eco-friendly supplier, with warehouses in the EU from which our uniform will be shipped, rather than from the UK, therefore the issues around import costs and customs clearance, post Britain leaving the EU, will be eliminated.

About Trutex

For over 150 years, Trutex have supplied high-quality school uniform to customers across the UK and the around world, and have always been committed to nurturing the future, now more than ever. Trutex became the UK’s first carbon neutral schoolwear company and have been a carbon neutral organisation since 2012.

All Trutex garments are Made to Last, with superior fabrics and construction that ensure the school uniform will be grown out of before it’s worn out.

  • 60% less micro-plastic fibre shedding than other leading brands,

  • 100% stronger trousers and 100% less shrinkage on polo shirts than competitors,

  • 100% recycled post-consumer polyester fabrics used in blazers, skirts and trousers,

  • Using sustainably sourced viscose in trousers and skirts,

  • Using responsibly sourced cotton in 100% cotton knitwear,

  • Choosing Teflon EcoElite, the world’s first plant-based textile repellant, as a stain resistant finish on trousers and skirts.

Ordering has never been easier!

Once our brand new, fully stocked EU webshop with Trutex is up and running in the new year, we will share the link and School Code with you, allowing you to securely place your new orders online with ease.

You will have two options for shipping:

Home Delivery (4 – 5 days)

  • FREE for orders above €125

  • €12.50 for orders under €125

In-School Delivery (every 15 days)

  • FREE

There will also be a FREE Returns service through the school, so you don’t have to worry about any costs associated with that anymore either!

Please rest assured that the uniform itself is not changing, so your current items will continue to be valid, however, should you require any replacement items, we wanted to seek out an easier, faster and more accessible option for our families. Thank you for your patience and support regarding this.
