Four years ago, TC Homes sponsored the school’s first-ever branded sports kit as a thank you for being neighbors after moving in and refurbishing the new corporate offices next to the school.

This year, with sports clubs and fixtures firmly on the map again after an extended absence due to Covid, the School’s Sports Council held a ‘Design a Kit’ competition.

A new design for the entire school sports kit was then created incorporating the best ideas.

TC Homes once again stepped in and sponsored the new football kit as part of a big relaunch for all team sports kits, which hadn’t been updated in decades.

The Children’s Sports Council, teacher and sports co-ordinator Miss Lewis and the sports co-ordinator recently received the new football kit, which will be used by children across the school.

Tim Charnley, Director of TC Homes, said: “Partnerships with local businesses, merchants and community organizations are really important to us at TC Homes and we want to give back to our local community whenever we can. When we found out the school was desperately short of matching sportswear a few years ago, we thought this would be a good thing for them.

“We moved into our new offices at Sabrina Court in Coleham three years ago this summer and love to hear the children playing nearby as our closest neighbours. When we were approached to sponsor the newly designed sports kit we were more than happy to help and are delighted that the children have something they have helped design themselves as they return to sport and matches.

Miss Lewis said: ‘The new sports kits will be amazing when the children take part in local events and represent the school.

“Children at the school will wear the Rugby, Cross Country, Athletics and Sports Ability kits, as well as the TC Homes sponsored football kit.

“Competitions and fixtures high on the school agenda their absence during Covid. Our Sports Council is launching the new kits to students and parents with a promotional video featuring TC Homes and themselves modeling the new outfits. We are truly grateful to TC Homes for helping bring the kits to life.
