Physical Education

In partnership with Kukri, the Collegiate introduced a new PE kit as part of our uniform in September 2017. This kit provides a modern look, whilst being practical, flexible and easier to keep clean! It is only available for purchase online from the Kukri website. The new PE kit is now compulsory for students in Years 7-11.

All PE kit items must be labelled with the student’s name and taken home regularly for washing. No jewellery of any kind may be worn during Physical Education lessons

Kukri – School stock is arriving throughout August, if you cannot find your size please revisit the shop after the 23rd August and place orders then. Orders are delivered within 3 days and will be with you before the start of term.

In addition, please note:

  • Non-uniform items, such as hoodies, caps or denim, should not be worn or brought to the Collegiate and will be confiscated if seen.
  • Students are allowed one single pair of studs worn in the lower ear – no other jewellery is allowed, including any visible body piercings or tongue studs. Nail varnish and nail extensions are not allowed; discrete, subtle make-up is permitted for students in Years 10-11.
  • Hair should not be dyed an unnatural colour or be bizarre / attention-seeking in any other way; hair must not be shaved shorter than a number 2 and hairbands, if worn, should be black.
  • Shoes should be plain black and leather – no platforms, boots, sling-backs, open-toe shoes, trainers or canvass shoes are allowed.
  • Either tights or socks should be worn, not both.
  • Belts and hijabs, if worn, should be plain black. Bags should also be plain black, worn over the shoulder and large enough to hold A4 books; handbags are not suitable for school.

Parents’ support in these matters is greatly appreciated.
