New PE Kit

Following consultation with staff and students a new PE kit was chosen for primary and secondary children. This can now be ordered online from Trutex Direct; see the ordering details above. While we do not expect parents to purchase full kit immediately, we expect all children in secondary to be wearing the new PE kit by July 2019.
