PE Kit

In recognition that Physical Activity and Exercise is such a valuable aspect of Health, we wish to ensure that pupils are aware of their responsibility to come fully prepared for all PE Activities.

Pupils attending PE classes are expected, even if they are not able to participate, (as they are still assessed in different roles) to bring their complete Rye Hills PE Kit.  

In line with all successful sports organisations Rye Hills Academy appreciates the importance of a corporate image as a tool towards developing quality teamwork, shared ethos, positive discipline and self-esteem.  In addition PE kit needs to be suitable for activities involved, comply with health and safety regulations and financially viable.  In consultation with pupils we have designed a PE kit which creates a good corporate image and is practical for the wide range of activities in which pupils will be involved.  We have negotiated a bulk purchase price with a local company in order to keep the cost as low as possible.

The compulsory PE kit at Rye Hills consists of:

  • Black/Orange Reversible Games Shirt or Black/Orange Polo Shirt.
  • Plain Black Shorts.
  • Black/Orange Long Socks.
  • Shin Pads
  • Football Boots for all boys.
  • Football Boots for girls wishing to play in the school football team.
  • Trainers.
  • Trainers or plimsoles for dance/yoga/gymnastics/trampoline

The following optional extras may be worn on top of compulsory kit in the event of very poor weather conditions:

  • Black/Orange Hoody
  • Plain Black tracksuit bottoms.

We strongly recommend that ALL items be clearly and permanently marked with the pupil’s name. 

Please note that due to health and safety regulations:

  • Shin pads must be worn for hockey/football/rugby
  • Football boots must be worn for football/rugby
  • Appropriate sport training shoes for all other sports
  • Trainers or plimsoles in dance/yoga/gymnastics/trampoline
  • Bare feet or stocking feet will not be allowed.

Orders can be placed using ParentPay. Cash and cheque payments please complete the order form overleaf and return it to the PE department ASAP.  Please enclose the correct cash.  Cheques should be payable to Rye Hills Academy.  All cheques will need to clear the banking system (this may take several weeks) before kit can be delivered.

Cash orders generally take one week to deliver subject to manufacturer’s stock levels.

Please contact the PE department should you have any questions regarding the PE kit or any other issue relating to the PE department. 

Thank you for your support.
