Physical Education:

In partnership with Kukri, the Collegiate has introduced a new PE kit as part of our uniform from September 2017. This new kit provides a more modern look, whilst being practical, flexible and easier to keep clean! It is only available for purchase online from the Kukri website. From September 2018, the new PE kit is compulsory for students in Years 7-10. Year 11 students may continue to wear their old PE kit during Core PE lessons if they wish.

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
