St Lawrence College chooses forward facing supplier for kit of distinction

St Lawrence College chooses forward facing supplier for kit of distinction

Esteemed private school St Lawrence College, located in Ramsgate, Kent, embarked upon a full uniform audit two years ago.

The conclusion was that their old sports kit was not reflective of the school’s distinctive identity and exemplary reputation and was no longer fit for purpose.

The brief was to introduce a new sports kit to coincide with the opening of a state of the art sports hall and appointment of new director of sport Adam Izzard to strengthen the school’s sporting record and image.

They turned to GFORCE from Gymphlex, one of their existing suppliers, recognising this cutting edge brand as one of the only collections on the market that would enable them to create the perfect kit for them.

Shop development manager Jo Hills comments on what attracted her to GFORCE: “I first became aware of GFORCE when I visited the Schoolwear Show two years ago.

“Having been familiar with the Gymphlex brand, which we already stocked in the on-site school shop, I was keen to see their new GFORCE range when I visited their stand. 

“GFORCE jumped out as the only brand at the show that had moved with the times and reflected the changing needs of the sports schoolwear market.

“The designs were contemporary and developed to offer improved performance using technical fabrics.

“Being able to see images to our own specifications designed on the stand made it clear this was the range for us. Gymphlex were very helpful in assisting me to identify the perfect selection of garments to meet the requirements of the school.”

Established over 120 years ago, St Lawrence College takes pupils from 3-18, meeting their educational needs from nursery to 6th form.

They now have a range of garments that make up their core kit and can be used for all physical activities the school has to offer, all produced in the school colours of navy and maroon with white as a highlight colour.

For girls: polo shirts, skorts, hoodies and tracksuits.

For boys: rugby/hockey shirts and shorts, polo shirts, hoodies and tracksuits. 

St Lawrence College have also selected base layer garments from the Gymphlex Core range.
