Surridge PE Kit - Update 23/09/21

We are aware of quality issues with PE Kit provided by Surridge Sport. The supplier has apologised for the issue and is working hard to rectify the problem as soon as possible. All faulty items will be exchanged free of charge once new stock is available.

Parents/ Carers are advised:

  • Continue to wear the sports kit for the moment and until new stock is available (approx. 2-3 weeks)
  • Contact Surridge to inform them of the faulty items and request an exchange
  • Replacement items will include a stitching around the badge and will be more durable
  • Exchanges for incorrect sizes will now be accepted.

If your order included incorrectly sized items, Surridge Sport have agreed to permit exchanges of the sizes also. Please check in school first of all to see if there is available stock for immediate swap, and if not, please contact Surridge Sport to request a replacement. Delivery timescales are approximately 2-3 weeks for all items due to the badge issue.

To contact Surridge, please email or call 01282 418 418 and choose option 1.
