Sports teams at a secondary school in St Neots have received new kit donated by a business.

Youngsters at Roundhouse Primary Academy were given the strip after their old one became tired and outdated.

Teacher and PE co-ordinator Hannah King said: “It is important for the identity of the school and for the children as it will build their confidence.”

The kit was donated by parent and business owner Rob Stockley, whose daughter attends the school.

“His daughter plays in the netball team and when they got to the county finals he thought the children should have something extra,” said Ms King

Year 4 and 5 pupils wore the strip for the first time at the Cambridgeshire County Netball Association High Five Netball county finals and it will now be used by all the school’s sport teams in various competitions.

“It is good to have for the kids as it will make them feel smart and have pride,” said Ms King.
