PE Kit Letter

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s),

We are writing to inform you that the Wigston Academy PE Department has recently changed PE Kit providers from Liss Sports to Uniform Direct. This decision was made to ensure purchasing the correct Wigston Academy PE kit is made easier for you, as they also provide our school uniform. Uniform Direct is providing a very similar kit to our old suppliers but we feel it will now be quicker and easier to buy, with a better price, range and quality.

The PE kits remain similar however you may notice a few minor changes. All previously bought/owned PE kit remains acceptable, as well as pupils still wearing old Bushloe or Abington coloured rugby shirts or white polos with school badges on.

When purchasing new PE kit please can you make sure kit meets the following PE Uniform requirements:

  • Plain Black t shirt or polo shirt
  • Plain Black shorts or tracksuit bottoms
  • Plain Black jumpers or hoodies (Coats and jackets are not allowed)
  • Black football socks or White/Black sports socks
  • Black sports leggings (Girls only)
  • No large branding/logos

If kit does not meet these requirements, pupils will be issued a C1 and expected to borrow the correct kit.

It is very important that ALL pupils are in the correct PE kit for PE lessons and the general rule is that all kit should be PLAIN black.

For all new kit please visit or Uniform Direct, 54-56 Humberstone Gate, Leicester, LE1 3PJ. Kit purchased online can be ordered for home delivery or in store collection.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact the PE department.

We thank you in advance for your support.

Yours faithfully,

Mr J. Dandolo & Mr D. Phillips

Joints Heads of PE
