NEW ENTRANTS TO SUTTON VALENCE 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.  During back to school appointments are available for the purchase of school uniform.
The school shop is situated within the grounds of the Senior School in a separate building on the left hand side as you enter the Quad above the chapel.

The school uniform shop has a dedicated phone line; If phoning out of school hours please leave a message and a member of Simmonds staff will call you back.
Simmonds provide the Sutton Valence School uniform and are responsible for operating the school shop which is managed by Jackie Bicker.  Between July and October, the shop is open on Monday, Wednesday & Friday 9.00am to 4.30pm and Saturday 8.00am to 12:30 pm. In August the shop is also open on Tuesday 9 to 4.30pm.
Details of the shop opening hours during school holidays can be obtained by calling Simmonds Shop in the school or by emailing the school shop sutval@simmonds-ltd.com.  Please note that uniform for Sutton Valence School is not sold through Simmonds Shop in Tunbridge Wells.

SHOPPING ONLINE

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.
