UNIFORM

It is highly recommended that all BHS Sports Kit isinitialled/named so that any lost items can be located and/or returned more easily. Initials can be embroidered for an additional cost of £2 per garment when ordering all school kit from official supplier Frank Harrison located at Kershaws Garden Centre.

 

 

Injury or Illness

If a pupil is unable to participate practically in a PE lesson due to an injury or illness, they must still bring their full PE kit along with a note written by parents/carers explaining the reason why they cannot participate. Students will always be included in the lesson (Officiating, Coaching or alternate exercises/activities to suit the situation) and therefore we want students to be dressed suitably and ensure we keep their school uniform clean and dry for the remainder of the day.
