UPDATED SCHOOL UNIFORM INFORMATION FOR SIR JOSEPH WILLIAMSON’S MATHEMATICAL SCHOOL FAMILIES

This summer we will be providing three ways for you to buy your uniform. Whichever way you choose if you make your purchase between Monday 20th July and Friday 7th August you will receive 10% discount.

1. A school shop appointment. Families may choose to visit the School shop which is open during the summer holidays. To book a slot visit www.simmonds-ltd.com and click ‘Book an Appointment’.

During your appointment we will be following government guidelines and good practice. We will ensure that you receive advice and guidance for buying your uniform but because the coronavirus can remain on packaging for up to 72 hours, we regret to say that it won’t be possible for pupils to try on items. Instead their uniform will need to be taken home and tried on there.

Any items that need to be exchanged or refunded can be brought back to the shop at a time to suit you and to help we have extended our returns policy to 100 days.

2. Buy Online. Our new website will be launched mid-June and contains specific information for the Math School including a video of how to measure, what you will need to buy and some helpful hints and tips. Delivery to your home or a place of your choice is free.

3. Click and collect service. Use the on-line service but for a quicker response select the ‘Click and Collect’ option when you check out. Click and Collect is available from either our new unit at Newnham Court Shopping Village, ME14 5LH or our Paddock Wood warehouse shop, TN12 6BE. There is convenient free parking outside both locations.

We are sorry that we will not be meeting as many of the Math School new starters as usual but hope that they still feel excited about their adventure and buying their new uniform. We will, of course, do anything we can to help both new and existing families and our customer service team can be contacted by email customerservice@simmonds-ltd.com or on 01892 837202.

Finally don’t forget the discount period between 20th July and 7th August is open to all Math School families and all purchases, however you make them will automatically receive 10% discount!

Best Wishes,

Simmonds
