REVERSIBLE HOUSE GAMES SHIRTS

This new House shirt replaces three different games shirts, the white polos, House Zephyrs and reversible rugby shirt. Available from Year 3, or a 22” chest, these feature a red Games shirt on the exterior and the house coloured stripes of Preparatory houses Assheton, Clifton and Hesketh, and Senior houses Dolphin, Dragon, Maltese Cross, Mitre Fleur-de-Lys, Pelican, Rose, Spread Eagle, and Wren on the interior.

Pupils will be able to wear either side of these shirts for Games unless they are asked to play a team sport in a particular colour.

Preparatory School houses: Assheton, Clifton, Hesketh
Senior School & Sixth Form houses: Dolphin, Dragon, Maltese Cross (MC), Mitre Fleur-de-Lys (MF), Pelican, Rose, Spread Eagle (SE), Wren

CRESTED ACTIVE JACKET

The new active jacket provides better weather resistance than the previous tracksuit jacket, it also has a hood within the collar. For Preparatory School pupils the jackets proudly display ‘Rossall Prep’ on the back, for Senior School and Sixth Form ‘Rossall Sport’ is emblazoned on the back.

The active jacket may run a little small and choosing a size larger than you would usually wear is advised. Use the smart sizing tool on SchoolBlazer to be advised of the correct size based on your measurements.

CRESTED TRAINING PANTS

Two styles of training pants will be available in the Senior School, a performance fit with tapered ankles and a standard fit. You may purchase the style you prefer.

FAQ

Where do I buy the new Sports Kit?

The new kit is available from SchoolBlazer, meaning it can still be purchased at the same time as Uniform. Small quantities will be available in RosShop. There is more information below on buying from RosShop.

Those new to Rossall will need to make an account with SchoolBlazer and input your child’s measurements. A printable tape measure can be found here and a guide to measuring your child here. When you click to enter your measurements there is also a video guide to measuring.

A full list of SchoolBlazer FAQs can be found here.

Do I have to buy the new kit straight away?

While only SchoolBlazer kit is acceptable for sport from September 2022, returning students will have the whole 2022-2023 School year to transition into the new kit. From September 2023, only this kit will be accepted as uniform. Pupils entering Year 6 will be able to purchase a Rossall Sport Active Jacket from RosShop if they wish to buy before Summer 2023 instead of the suggested Rossall Prep jacket.

When is the best time to buy the kit?

Summer is a very busy time for SchoolBlazer. It is advised you buy your uniform early in the summer. Free UK postage and packaging will be available from 4th -17th July, making this the best time to shop. SchoolBlazers’ returns policy is 120 meaning you can still exchange your item if you found the items did not fit by the start of the term.

I do not live in the UK, do I have to get my kit shipped to my country to bring it in my suitcase?

SchoolBlazer offers delivery to Rossall School, and we will store your parcel until you arrive when it will be delivered to your boarding house.

Is this kit more expensive?

Every effort has been made to keep costs similar, the Reversible House shirts, for example, replace three other shirts. Some items that were once listed as compulsory are now recommended or optional, allowing those that play less sport, or prefer particular kinds of clothing, to only purchase the core kit. However, supply and manufacturing costs have risen for almost all products globally so you will notice some rises in costs across our SchoolBlazer range.

SchoolBlazer has announced an upcoming inflation rise in prices (prices above may change). They will still be offering free shipping for two weeks in July, free shipping year-round on orders over £150, and free sewing of name labels. Their new price increase comes in lower than the inflation percentage.

What do I do with my old kit?

Unfortunately, RosShop will not be able to accept any of the old kit on the ‘New to You’ scheme. However, we will have a recycling drop-off point outside of RosShop from mid-June, and throughout the next school year, for good quality old kits that we will donate to a charity that repurposes uniforms around the world.

What will the kit for Pre-Prep be?

The new active jackets and training pants will replace the old, striped tracksuit. The shorts and polo will remain the same in Pre-Prep. Reversible House shirts are not required in Pre-Prep.

Can I buy kit and uniform at School?

RosShop, our on-campus shop, keeps a try-on size for all blazers, and will do the same with Active Jackets. You can make an appointment to visit RosShop over summer if you wish to try anything on or get assistance with the items you need to order. Zoom appointments will also be available.

You should purchase your uniform and kit before arriving at Rossall, if you need help with this, please contact RosShop. We encourage purchases from SchoolBlazer and can assist you if you are finding this difficult.

Are there any changes to School uniform?

There are no major changes to School uniform.

Sixth Form will be able to wear a larger variety of colours for shirts and jumpers.

The full uniform list can be found here.
