Why School Trunk?

With space at a premium, schools, students and parents face an uphill battle to find sufficient storage space and track belongings during the holidays. Families based abroad, and often even local parents, find looking after school uniform over the holiday is often a challenge.

Founded by boarding school Mums, entrepreneurs and businesswomen, Dorothy McLaren and Chelsea Hayes, School Trunk offers a simple, secure and efficient logistics management solution for independent schools, universities and students, as well as a uniform care service for students.

Leave it to us – we’re here to help

Helping Parents

Silver Storage

Holiday storage: We collect belongings from schools at the end of every term, store them and deliver them back to school at the beginning of term or on to university or even back home.

Gold Care

Managing school uniform: We unpack, wash/dry clean, mend, name-tape and repack school uniforms, reporting fully on the contents and comparing them with the school’s requirements.

Storage Options

Simple, useful, safety-conscious storage products: robust collapsible School Trunk Crates, boxes and bespoke School Trunk Duvet Bags. These practical alternatives to traditional school trunks/suitcases, are carefully selected for ease of use and, because of the specific size, minimise the threat of overweight items, keeping item weights around 25kg.

Helping Schools

Storage and logistics solutions

We solve storage and logistics problems, both over the holiday period and during term time, so schools can free up space for holiday lets or deep-cleans and renovation.

School Trunk collects students’ belongings, stores them securely off-site (or on-site where space is available) and returns them to the students’ new rooms at the beginning of the next term (or on to university or home). School Trunk’s DBS-checked teams do the heavy lifting, moving trunks and boxes to and from pupils’ rooms. All the labelling, administration and liaison with the students is also managed by School Trunk.

Supporting students

Our school uniform Gold Care package returns students to school well-prepared, as if the uniform had been home and back. We can also remove the hassle of accepting and allocating pupils’ parcels when school is closed, receiving items ordered during the holidays, name-taping as required and delivering them back to school with the rest of the kit.
