Following an extensive student survey, we have made the decision to update and modernise our PE Kit. We want to provide students with a kit they are not only comfortable in, but are proud to wear. We have increased the variety of garments where we have created a skort and specialist sports leggings. Of course, we do not expect students to immediately purchase this but below is the timeline for how we will phase things in.
September 2019: New Year 7 Students
September 2020: Year 8 – 10 students (Students are encouraged to purchase the new kit as and when their old one becomes too small or is misplaced in any way, although we also support anyone who would like to purchase them throughout the year)
Year 11 students starting in September 2020 will not be required to purchase the new kit but are of course, welcome to acquire if they wish to.
We have ensured that all garments meet our new colour-way/branding identity to ensure consistency across the student body. With this in mind, no other alternatives to those purchased from Ricara will be part of the PE kit policy from September 2019 (Year 7) and September 2020 (Year 8-10).
With regards to existing PE kit, Ricara still have some stock of this, which they will offer to Y8 and above for September but when this is gone it is gone.
