Following months of consultation with our Student Leaders, we are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new Holly Hall PE kit as from September 2017. The kit has been designed to be more comfortable and practical as well as providing layers for all conditions. The new kit brings a more striking and professional appearance and we hope it will give our students a greater sense of belonging and pride, when representing the Academy at local and national level.
Affordability and durability have been our main considerations, and we appreciate that not all of our students will need new kit in September. Therefore, it is our intention to introduce the changes to students currently in Years 7 and 8 along with students currently in Year 9 and 10, who have chosen Physical Education (Sports Studies) at Key Stage 4. For those students in their last two years at the Academy, who only attend core PE, the new kit will be optional. Our intention is for all students to be wearing the new kit by September 2018.
The new kit is slightly more expensive that the current kit, however the items are of better quality and durability, offering better value for money. If you wish to examine the new PE kit, it is on show in the main reception area and you are welcome to view it at the end of any Academy day.
By notifying families well in advance of the changes we are introducing, we hope it will give everyone opportunity to budget for the cost of the new kit. Items can be purchased from Maple Workwear, details can been seen here.
This new kit will make an important contribution to the ethos of the Academy: an outstanding PE kit for outstanding students. With this in mind, we feel certain that we can depend upon you for your support in this matter.
If you have any questions regarding the new PE kit, then please do not hesitate to contact the PE department or your child’s Intervention Coordinator.
