Gym Kits

There is a Gym and Games kit to be worn for all Lower and Upper School children. The School Gym kit (except shoes) can be purchased from Reception.

Classes 3 & 4

Each Gym kit should contain:

  • 1 x bag, embroidered by child and sewn together by parents (this will be given to you at the end of the Summer Term in Class 2)
  • 1 x t-shirt with School logo (available from Reception)
  • 1 x red sweatshirt with School logo (available from Reception)
  • 1 x navy tracksuit bottoms
  • 1 x navy shorts (optional)

Footwear:

We encourage children to be barefoot in the Gym in Classes 3 and 4.  However, if they have injuries or foot issues, they may wear a pair of clean indoor ‘non-marking’ shoes. (We recommend plimsolls or minimalist trainers.  High heel trainers with lots of cushioning limit the ability of the foot to move).

  • 1 x outdoor trainers/black plimsolls, to remain with kit (separate to classroom indoor shoes)

Classes 5 – 8

  • 1 x Gym bag of choice
  • 1 x t-shirt with School logo (available from Reception)
  • 1 x red sweatshirt with School logo (available from Reception)
  • 1 x navy tracksuit bottoms
  • 1 x navy shorts (optional)
  • (Class 7 upwards) 1 x gum shield. Students from Class 7 up will need a gum shield as part of their kit. They will be given sufficient warning that a Hockey block is approaching. If they do not have a gum shield for Hockey lessons, the Gym Department will supply them with one and we will add this to the School bill at a cost of approx. £4.50.
  • (Class 7 upwards) 1 x spare change of underwear
  • (Class 7 upwards) 1 x towel
  • (Class 7 upwards) 1 x waterproofs
  • (Class 7 upwards) 1 x hat and gloves (optional and depending on activity)

Footwear:

  • 1 x outdoor trainers, to remain with kit
  • 1 x pair of clean indoor ‘non-marking’ trainers (we need all children to wear indoor trainers/plimsolls for games at this age as the children are getting bigger and there is a greater risk of foot injuries when some are wearing footwear and others are barefoot)
  • (Class 7 upwards) 1 x studded boots for football, rugby and they can be used for orienteering and outdoor games

Upper School (Classes 9 – 12)

  • 1 x Gym bag of choice
  • 1 x white t-shirt
  • 1 x navy sweatshirt
  • 1 x navy tracksuit bottoms
  • 1 x navy shorts (optional)
  • 1 x gum shield. Students will be given sufficient warning that a Hockey block is approaching. If they do not have a gum shield for Hockey lessons, the Gym Department will supply them with one and we will add this to the School bill at a cost of approx. £4.50.
  • 1 x spare change of underwear
  • 1 x towel
  • 1 x waterproofs
  • 1 x hat and gloves (optional and depending on activity)

Footwear:

  • 1 x pair of clean indoor ‘non-marking’ trainers
  • 1 x pair of outdoor trainers
  • 1 x studded boots for football, rugby and they can be used for orienteering and outdoor games

Please note that jewellery and watches will need to be removed for lessons.  Small earrings can be taped over safely with micro-pore tape supplied by you and can be purchased from most chemists.
