AKS Lytham: a place to flourish
Kukri Sports empowers AKS Lytham's pupils to achieve their sporting potential
AKS Lytham is an outstanding institution for both academic and co-curricular opportunity and a place where opportunities for personal growth abound. All AKS students are offered sporting and recreational opportunities that provide a variety of challenges to suit every individual and develop the personal skills of teamwork and co-operation.
Supported by numerous staff, an extensive range of co-curricular activities maximise the excellent facilities including two sports halls, floodlit astro-turf, four rugby and five football pitches, four netball courts, 14 tennis courts, including two grass courts, and a superb fitness facility.
AKS Lytham are delighted that their sports kit truly reflects their pupils’ achievements and diverse sports offering, helping them to achieve their best both on and off the field.
Pupils enjoy great success at all levels: participating in numerous recreational activities, competing in the Inter-House activities that take place throughout the year or as part of the extensive weekend and midweek fixture lists. Approximately 75% of all pupils represent the school in at least one activity during the course of the year.
It is not only in the participation that AKS excels, with currently over 30 pupils gaining representative honours at county, regional or national level in 11 different sports this year alone.
The opportunity for pupils to experience different cultures is also a key element of the sporting life at
AKS, with recent domestic and major overseas sports tours to Wales, Scotland, Spain, Sri Lanka, Australia, Singapore and a return to South Africa and Swaziland in July 2017.
“AKS Lytham has been using the Kukri brand for a number of years, and will look to do so for the considerable future,” said Robbie Jones, Director of PE. “We are delighted by the quality of sports kit that our pupils wear, both in lessons, when representing the school and when travelling the world. Being able to support a Lancashire-based firm with a worldwide audience, echoes the sentiments of the school. The bespoke nature of the kit enables us to incorporate our various school colours that help set AKS apart.”
It is the provision of kit for a multi-sport offering that Kukri Sports excels in which makes Kukri an industry-leading bespoke sportswear brand. From Kukri’s partnership with Team England, Canada and Ireland, supplying sportswear to athletes for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games to providing professional teamwear with a bespoke, unified look across state and independent schools they ensure teams are empowered by their sportswear, maximising impact on and off the pitch when participating in events, fixtures, competitions and tours.
