ONLINE OR SCHOOL SHOP?
Simmonds offer two options for purchasing school uniform at your convenience; these include online shopping and shopping at the Maidstone Grammar School Shop.
NEW ENTRANTS TO MAIDSTONE GRAMMAR SCHOOL
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 the school shop. The school shop is situated within the grounds of the school buildings adjacent to the car park, facing towards the entrance to the school reception.
An appointments system operates for the purchase of uniform during the summer holiday period. Please book appointments by telephoning the school shop . If phoning out of hours please leave a message and a member of Simmonds staff will call you back to make the appointment with you or answer any queries you may have.
Simmonds provide the Maidstone Grammar School uniform and are responsible for operating the school shop which is managed by Julie Tomlin. The shop is open for business during school term time on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1.15pm to 2.15pm and on the first Saturday in each month from 10.00am to 12.00 lunchtime. During the summer holidays the shop opens for a selected period of time. Details of opening times can be obtained from MGS or Simmonds Customer Services 01892 837202.
Please note that uniform for Maidstone Grammar School is not sold through Simmonds Shop in Tunbridge Wells.
Shopping online is available to customers 24 hours/day, 365 days/year. The prices are the same as shop prices and delivery is to your chosen destination.
Payment online is secure and Simmonds 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.
If you have a more urgent order you may telephone customer services to see if we are able to facilitate an alternative shipping method via a courier service. This would be a chargeable service paid for by the customer over the phone and would be based on the weight and size of your order. Sometimes for reasons of stock location, multiple goods for one order may be despatched from different locations. This could have an impact on a courier delivery.
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.
