COVID - Due to the need to avoid mixing of year groups in the changing rooms, students are required to wear PE kit all day when PE appears on their timetable.  This will return to normal as soon as restrictions are lifted.
(NB: * Optional Item)

All pupils who are well enough to be in school are expected to bring and wear their PE kit to every PE lesson, even if they feel a little under the weather or are nursing an injury. Under the guidance of their PE teacher, the student will be given a different practical role to carry out during this time and their condition will be taken into consideration.

It is expected that all Year 7 pupils have purchased their clothing needs before they start school in September. All items of Physical Education clothing must be clearly marked with the owner’s name before the kit is worn for the first time.

To create a healthy and safe environment and to meet Health and Safety requirements, all pupils are expected to remove all jewellery before engaging in any physical activity.  We ask parents/carers to support this in seeing that any body piercing is only undertaken at the beginning of the holiday, so it has time to settle down before removal. Any piercings which cannot be removed must be covered with a plaster.  

Pupils who forget their PE kits will be given a washed kit to wear.  Once worn pupils must take the kit home to wash and bring back to school the following day.

Please note the school ties will be in the house colours as follows:-
