There are five compulsory sports kit items that must be purchased: Rugby shirts, rugby shorts, rugby socks, House Polo shirts & gym shorts. With the exception of these five items, kit may be purchased from other sources.
Pupils will be able to purchase their sports’ kit directly from the Graduates shop in Orpington High Street or via their website.
St. Olave’s cricket kit can now also be purchased from Graduates. Please note that these are not compulsory items – pupils can wear their current PE kit for summer sports, but many pupils who represent the school at cricket choose to purchase these items. They will be stocking cricket trousers, shirts and short-sleeved jumpers with the school logo embroidered onto them.
Change to the school crest on the school blazer and PE kit.
Following the introduction of the new School Crest in 2019, please be aware that introductory timings will be different for each of these pieces of uniform:
All blazers bought from Spring Term 2020 onwards from our suppliers ‘Graduates’ will have the new crest incorporated. We would expect that all students in Year 7 to Year 11 will therefore be wearing the blazer bearing the new crest from September 2021.
The new school crest will be available on PE kit from the end of the Spring Term 2021. The different timing from the blazer is needed due to the amount of PE kit ‘Graduates’ currently stock with the old crown and axe crest. Therefore, only new PE kit purchased from the end of the Spring Term 2021 will have the new school crest incorporated. All PE kit bought before the end of the Spring Term 2021 will have the old crown and axe as a crest. We are aware that due to the lifespan of the PE kit, it would seem short-sighted that kit which had been bought a few years earlier and still fits students can no longer be used. Therefore, there will be some flexibility about old PE kit being used, although we expect all students will be using PE kit with the new school crest from September 2022. It is hoped that phasing this in will assist with the financial implications of a change and please do get in touch with the school if this is a concern.
