CTK PE Kit
The new design PE kit utilises the colours in our school badge and is made with new fabric technology that is best suited to a sports environment. The PE department wanted to make sure that this PE kit met with the needs and wants of our pupils so we met with a large group of our pupils in Years 7-11 who all have different experiences of PE and school sport – some who only take part in physical activity in PE lessons, others who have represented the school in a range of sports and those who have been sports leaders.
This has been the result of listening to our pupils, which allows them to choose what they would like to wear in their PE lessons based on a range of options available to them. It is important that our pupils feel comfortable and confident in their PE lessons and what they wear can massively influence this.
This will be available to purchase from Whittakers during the summer holidays 2019. This kit will only be compulsory for our Year 7 intake in 2019/20 but will be optional for all other year groups.
Here are the choices available:
A choice of a V neck fitted polo shirt OR a buttoned polo shirt. A choice or a skort (skirt with shorts sewn in) OR shorts. A choice of a hoodie or a reversible top*. Black sports socks for all pupils. Trainers for ALL pupils/football boots are highly recommended for Football and Rugby but not compulsory. *The reversible top will be used by ALL the boys’ sports teams in fixtures against other schools
Black sports leggings – full length for all pupils**. Black long Sleeve base layer for all pupils**. **The optional items MUST be worn UNDER the shorts or skort. Please take into account when thinking about sizes.
There is the option for those pupils taking GCSE and BTEC courses in Years 10 and 11 to have this printed on the back of their polo shirt at an added cost. Pupils will also be able to have their initials printed on their items at an added cost.
