Welcome to Trutex Newbury


We have been trading from the shop premises in Bartholomew Street  since April 2005  (formerly National schoolwear centres) and remain totally INDEPENDENTLY and LOCALLY owned and operated whilst also having the benefit of a unique trading license agreement with Trutex Ltd who have been manufacturing and supplying quality garments specifically for the schoolwear sector for over 140 years now !

Here at Trutex Schoolwear and More Newbury we are constantly looking at ways to make it easy and convenient for you to access all the items you need for school days and after school activities. We hope that this new web-site will prove a useful addition to our established retail premises in the heart of Newbury.

We hope that you will bear with us whilst we upload all the relevant local schools information and product details onto the site but in the meantime if there is ANYTHING you would like to know  about our products and services please do call us on 01635 38285 or use the contact link to e-mail us ( on the "Contact Us" page )

Here you will be able to find all the latest up to date details of our opening hours ,special offers and extensive product range as well as a guide to help you locate our shop in Bartholomew St.     



We are committed to serving the needs of the local community in Newbury and its surrounding districts with a first class retail based service and have a very friendly and knowledgeable team of staff on hand to give you the time and attention you need to make purchasing schoolwear as  "hassle free " as possible . We appreciate that during our very busy times in July and August you will want to be served as quickly as possible which is why we have added a second till and extended our opening hours to include Sundays during the 6 weeks of the school summer holidays but we also hope that as we update and add products onto this site. Remember we are not like WEB-SITE only suppliers and we are totally committed to providing a proper retail service backed up by products that are stocked 365 days of the year. We know that sometimes we may run out of some items and we may have to take an order from you but with our "ON-SITE" embroidery machine we are able to turn stock around very speedily and aim to keep you waiting no longer than 2 weeks from the date of placing your order with us.

We will happily post goods to you for a standard shipping fee of £3.99 inc vat but a visit to us in the first instance is perhaps the best way for you to appreciate the extensive range of products and sizes we have available.

Don’t forget that we cater for all the local SCOUT, GUIDE, CUB, BROWNIE, BEAVER and RAINBOW units as well as SWIMWEAR.!

Our EMBROIDERY and HEAT PRESS facilities ( on site ! ) can produce a wide range of customised items for local schools, clubs, businesses and organisations from "one offs" to bulk orders as well as our "stock supported" essentials for our partner schools.
