Congrats to those whose DD`s who are in, my daughter is in year 7 at Colchester and still enjoying herself despite the long day. Regarding the pe kit, they do as far as I am aware use it all including the skort thing, I will ask my DD tomorrow what is used for what. Its quite a lot of kit to get but it does all fit in the PE bag somehow(you will get a form for the CCHS PE bag...huge thing it is too with name on)
One piece of advice from other parents last year was to get the bus form in asap as spaces can be limited depending on the route and service etc.
My daughter is looking forward to welcoming all the `littleones`for this year on their introduction day and letting the older girls coo and aaah over them instead!! They are just about still classed as cute and little by the bigger girls, but not for long
