It is important to order uniform items in advance to ensure your child has everything they need at the beginning of term.

It is compulsory for all pupils playing rugby and hockey at CH to wear a mouth guard and every pupil should have one by the start of the Michaelmas term. It is essential that the mouth guard is made to a specific standard by a dental surgeon as the ‘self mouldable’ (boil and bite) types of mouth guards no longer meet the minimum standard recommended. If you have any questions on this matter, please do not hesitate to contact the CH Director of Sport, Mr D H Messenger, by email.
