THS footwear requirements

  • As stated above ensure footwear is fit for purpose and provides secure footing for whatever the surface or activity,
  • We strongly recommend the use of studded boots for football and rugby. 

EQUIPMENT

  • The PE department highly recommends the use of studded boots and shin pads for football lessons and the use of gum shields and shin pads in hockey lessons. During rugby lessons studded boots are highly recommended and gum shields are compulsory in all contact situations.

FIXTURES

The following equipment is compulsory for all fixtures in the following sports without exception:

  • Football: studded boots and shin pads.
  • Rugby: studded boots and gum shields.
  • Hockey: gum shields and shin pads. Goalkeeping kit/equipment must be worn by hockey goalkeepers.
  • Cricket: cricket helmets and a box must be worn by all batsmen and wicket keepers.

Note: for PE lessons during the winter months, students have the option to wear either the leggings or tracksuit bottoms with the school logo or plain tracksuit bottoms and the school PE sweatshirts to keep warm. When weather forecasts give warning of hot, sunny weather, it is advisable for students to use sun cream and they may wear caps during suitable outdoor lessons. Please be advised that in certain weather conditions as well as certain sports that kit may get wet and muddy. 

MAKE-UP AND JEWELLERY

The following items are acceptable in school:

  • A single, or one pair of discreet stud earrings is allowed in the earlobe. No other body piercings are acceptable because of the potential problems with appearance and Health and Safety issues. Plasters covering such piercings are not acceptable
  • Discreet, natural make-up
  • Natural hair colours with no extreme of fashion
  • Natural nails without varnish, polish or extensions
  • The wearing of rings is not permitted in school
