It is important that all items of uniform are named.

In addition, all pupils must have a white, cotton protective workshop apron for practical work in Design Technology. This can be bought from any outlet. Also to comply with hygiene and food safety regulations, all pupils must have a blue school apron for all practical Food Technology lessons.  This can only be purchased from school to maintain uniformity, at a cost of £5.00. Pupils should bring the money to their first Food Technology lesson.

Pupils also need a suitable bag in which to carry books to and from school

P.E. and Games

Participation in a varied programme of physical activity requires a varied amount of sporting clothing and equipment at Philips High School.

Boys’ Kit:                                      

#Red and black shirt-from suppliers

Black Shorts (2 pairs – one for indoors, one for outdoors)

Red Football Socks

Football Boots

Training Shoes – no canvas shoes

New sports vest – from suppliers White Socks


Plain black outdoor top & tracksuit bottoms. (School suppliers provide both with the school badge on). Pupils involved in school teams can wear cricket whites, but this is optional

*Shin Pads

No boxer shorts to be worn as underwear

Because of the continued development of Sports Wear as Leisure Wear, we feel it is now necessary to ask parents to help us maintain the standards of school kit by buying kit without, for example, 3 white stripes on shorts and socks and coloured sections on shirts for both indoor and outdoor activities. We also feel sure that not only will this help us to maintain standards, but will also save you, the parents, money, as many brand name items are very expensive.

Girls’ Kit:

#Plain black sweatshirt (no hood) & tracksuit bottoms. (School suppliers provide both with the school badge on).

#Scarlet Aertex

Red Short Socks

Black (Football) Hockey Socks

Training Shoes – no canvas shoes or high top trainers

Plain black football shorts


*Shin Pads

Gum Shield – advised to wear for hockey

* These are essential items

#These items have the school logo embroidered on them. However, this depends on availability from suppliers and is not essential.

The cost of this equipment is not cheap, but it is felt to be necessary and wherever possible, we have endeavoured to find dual purposes for various items.

It is essential that all clothing is clearly named, aertex and skirt should have child‟s initials

embroidered on front.

If you ever have any questions regarding your child‟s Physical Education programme, do not hesitate to contact the Department.  We will always be pleased to see you and discuss with you any aspect of Physical Education at Philips High.
