Welcome to Simmonds School Uniform online shopping.


Simmonds offer two options for purchasing school uniform at your convenience; these include online shopping and shopping at Simmonds in Tunbridge Wells. 

For reasons of sizing, advice on quantities and care labels, and in order to avoid the need for returns, we recommend that uniform for new entrants is purchased from Simmonds in Tunbridge Wells as opposed to online. 
Shopping online is suitable for repeat or replacement purchases, and delivery is to home.
Simmonds are located at 64 Calverley Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN1 2UG and are open daily from Monday to Saturday 9.00am-5.30pm. 
It is not necessary to make an appointment for your child regarding the purchase of uniform.
If you wish to contact a member of staff at Simmonds, the telephone number for Tunbridge Wells and email address are detailed at the top of this page.





The online shopping prices are detailed on the product pages, and may vary according to garment size. Payment online is secure and we operate a credit / debit card payment system through World Pay.  Postage and packing is free on all orders despatched by Simmonds. Orders are despatched as promptly as possible however please allow up to 5 working days. Please note that in some schools we offer a uniform shop facility, which means that our stock is kept in numerous locations. Therefore if you place an order in the school holiday period, or during a period that the shop is closed, you may encounter a further delay as occasionally we are unable to access stock in a school shop until that school re-opens.


We hope that you are happy with your purchase, but should you need to return any goods please obtain a proof of posting. Please note, unless faulty or for reasons previously discussed with Simmonds Customer Service, returns are not paid for by Simmonds and you will be returning goods at your own cost.


There is a dedicated customer service email,          
and telephone helpline available from 9am to 5.30 pm Monday to Friday. 

Our Customer Service Team will endeavour to respond to your email within 48 hours during our normal opening times, which are Monday to Friday from 9:00am - 5:30pm.

The aim of the Bennett uniform is to ensure that students are smartly, simply and safely dressed in a practical style suitable for school life and activities.  Equally, of course, the uniform identifies each student as a member of the Bennett community, both within and beyond the School.  It is most important for the image of the School that students create a positive impression by presenting themselves confidently and smartly in public.
