 For reasons of sizing and to enable customers to get advice on caring for uniform and wearing it correctly, it is recommended that initial purchases of uniform for new entrants to Hadlow Rural Community School are made in Tunbridge Wells. Once sizing is known, shopping online is ideal giving customers the freedom to shop from home or work at their leisure.  Shopping online can provide a 'one stop shopping experience' for families and post and packing is free.



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.

No other items of clothing (in particular hoodies) will be permitted; students should be correctly dressed for the appropriate curriculum activity.

Hair Styles


·         Hair must be worn in a style, which, in the judgement of the School, is appropriate for a formal uniform situation.  An unnatural striking appearance, which may be considered suitable for social occasions, is inappropriate for the School.

·         Haircuts must be no shorter than a No: 3

·         Shaved patterns, undercuts, extensive braiding* or beading are not acceptable

·         Unnatural/extremes of colour, for example those caused through dyeing or bleaching are not acceptable

·         Styles with coloured streaks, patterns or two-tones are not acceptable.


*In a few cases and because of hair type and cultural status, functional braiding may be appropriate.  However, advice must be sought in advance of styling since it will not be allowed unless there is an agreement with the School in advance.


In addition, students with long hair must ensure it does not obscure the face and is kept tidy at all times.  Students will be requested to tie hair back for all practical subjects, this should be done with a plain hair band (no other hair accessories are permitted).  Boys should attend the School clean shaven.




·         Make-up must not be worn and will be confiscated if found

·         No nail polish or false nails

·         Students will be required to remove any make up worn in School.
