For Physical Education
Boys will need a reversible shirt, black with white stripe, black shorts, swimming trunks not leisure 'shorts', football boots (for soccer and rugby), black football socks, white T-shirt for Summer, and plimsolls/trainers.
Girls will need white short sleeved blouse, black cycling shorts or black shorts, swimming costume (not bikini!) and plimsolls/trainers. We also recommend the reversible shirt for girls as this provides extra warmth in the winter months.
Most indoor work can be done in bare feet or plimsolls/trainers. School Jogging suit or black tracksuit trousers are acceptable for winter wear.
All children will need an apron for 'dirty work' such as Pottery, D & T, Art, etc. and a second apron for 'clean work' such as Food Technology. Please ensure that your child possesses these items all clearly named. It is strongly recommended that certain items be duplicated to allow reasonable time for washing and drying. Children will be told clearly beforehand when they need this equipment and we request your co-operation in ensuring that they have them on the required day.
Having purchased all the equipment and clothing mentioned, it is necessary to carry this to school. Please supply your child with a simple drawstring bag for PE and Games/Swimming kit, and a school bag or rucksack, etc. for books, pens, pencils, etc. These need not be too large!
We do ask for your support in helping us to reach for the highest possible standard in our children's appearance. Please ensure that, as far as possible, your child is dressed in school uniform with appropriate footwear (not trainers) and all items are named. Shoulder length hair (for health and safety reasons) should be tied back. Please do not send or allow your son/daughter to come to school adorned with earrings (apart from one pair of plain studs), fashion trouser belts, bracelets, necklaces or rings. No other piercings are permitted. Similarly make-up, hair gel, dyed, tinted or high-lighted hair are fashion statements and totally inappropriate for school. We always emphasise to our children that they are coming to a place of work and should dress accordingly.
