Every year I say the same, I can’t believe Back To School is upon us again so soon! I think we’re going to do a ‘weeks to’ countdown like with Xmas (Ooops, sorry, 22 Weeks btw!)


Any hoo, as per usual here’s our annual Back To School list of nuggets, gems and other useful information for parents and uniform purchasing!

  1. You can purchase uniform in store
  2. You can order online at http://www.brendas.co.uk
  3. If you order by 3pm you will get your order by next working day
  4. You can order online and collect in store
  5. You can use our deposit scheme online and in store
  6. If you pop in store you can use our put by service and pay off in installments
  7. It is much quieter early holidays then end (Over 1000 families a day end of August!)
  8. Kids don’t grow that much over summer to leave it late!
  9. Special requirements please come in now to discuss rather than later
  10. We have on street parking and a free public car park just past the store in Watchetts Road GU15 2UZ.
  11. There is also a free car park at Camberley Indoor Bowls Club, Wilton Road GU15 2QW
  12. We are heavily stocked but if you do leave it very late you can run the risk of not getting the size you need.
  13. The store is open Monday to Saturday 9am to 5.30pm
  14. We do not open Sundays or Bank Holidays
  15. Queuing outside the store may be implemented if it gets to busy in store, we’ve not had to operate this yet but it does get quite full
  16. You can call the store on 01276 469697 or email shop@brendas.co.uk
  17. We have shoe shop opposite (Shoes 4 School!) that specialises in school shoes and bags with brands such as Kickers, Hush Puppies, POD and Gola


Lastly, Brenda’s won the award of Best Schoolwear Store in the UK 2016, but despite us working hard and being very passionate about what we do it is often a fraught time of year. We keep the smiles and will work to ensure you have what you need in the quickest possible time but inevitably there will always be the odd hiccup somewhere!

We appreciate patience with the longer queues at the end of the summer but can’t recommend enough coming in early!

Have a great summer 🙂
