Dear Parent(s)/Carer(s)

After consultation with the students and the Parents Advisory Council, I have received the School Physical Education kit.

The current kit offer does not cater for students’ needs, especially during the winter months in a school that has a lack of indoor facilities. As a seasoned Physical Education teacher for twenty years, I am very conscious of the need for students to feel comfortable and warm in order for them to be able to achieve their best in lessons.

It is with this in mind that I will be introducing a new Physical Education kit into school from September 2019.


In the new kit offer there will be:

Polo Shirt

Shorts / skort

Performance Trousers (Skinny Pant)

Performance Top (1/4 Zip Training Top)

In addition to these items you will have the option to purchase a Shrewsbury Academy waterproof jacket.

Prices for these items are very competitive and stock will be supplied to the School Shop via Surridge Sportswear, which is an incredibly reputable supplier of school and team sportswear.

I have worked alongside Surridge sports in other schools and their level of service has always been exemplary.

All new students to the school, Year 7 intake for September 2019 will be required to wear only the new kit.

Students in other years will be required to be in the new kit by October half term 2019.

I am very pleased to have worked alongside the students to move this issue forward.


Yours sincerely

Mr J Arnold

Headteacher – Shrewsbury Academy
