Why Leavers’ Hoodies?

We love our 2025 Leavers hoodies.  

They’re an instantly recognisable, eye-catching way to create awareness of your school or college within your local community.  

That’s not all, though.

Hoodies for School Residential Trips and Ski Trips

Warm and easy to wear, our range of personalised hoodies are ideal for those away-from-home trips, enabling instant team recognition and, we think, a good healthy bit of bonding in an unfamiliar situation.  What’s more, they’re excellent ID and play a role in keeping your young people safe.

How about…Branded Hoodies for Freshers’ Week, sports trips, or other special occasions?  The choice is only limited to your imagination.

Meet Sophie English

I was inspired to set up Hartland Hoodies after being asked to organise my daughters Year 6 leavers hoodies. The whole process through the chosen supplier was an absolute nightmare! It took so much of my time. Everything was so manual, from collecting the nicknames, payments and following up the progress of the order and keeping everyone informed.

As a mum of 3 I knew I couldn’t face this for each of their Year 6 and Year 11 leavers hoodies as well as ski trip hoodies or other branded clothing.

So I put my thinking cap on…..

My father and I have owned a promotional products business for over 10 years. I took the basis of the company and focussed on leavers hoodies and club clothing. Using my experience of running the promotional business, being an active member of various PTA’s and a parent to 3, Hartland Hoodies was formed.

I had 6 goals:-

  1. Easy on-line ordering for PTAs and Year 11 teachers

  2. Choice of embroidery and print options

  3. Hassle free on-line payments for the parents  

  4. Better communication of the process

  5. Fund raising opportunity for each and every school with commission on every order

  6. Complimentary hoodie that could be used with each order for pupil premium or additional fundraising

I put my brave boots on and created my ideal on-line school leaver hoodie ordering process!

I designed my website; dealt with suppliers to get the best value and quality hoodies; got to grips with technology to build individual on-line shops for each school and joined every PTA and school network available. I used my connections to advertise and market the business.

Within weeks the orders started coming in. The positive feedback and reviews were greatly received. The school organisers could not believe how much easier the process had become. The parents were happy because they could use the link in the letter the school sent to order their child’s hoodie. They could view the colour chart, decide on the correct size and make their payment online. Confirmations were sent with important dates outlined and log in details to their account to follow the progress of their order.

Hartland Hoodies has gone from strength to strength and our customer base grows every year. We are currently working with 100’s of schools across the UK and appreciate all the connections we have made along the way.

My father, who originated the business, looks on and can see the legacy I’m building for my children. My eldest will finish school in a few years, and I hope that she will become part of the next generation to continue Hartland Hoodies!
