The fastest growing school sportswear brand in the UK
In 2015, our product development team recognised that school sportswear needed to change. Students wanted performance fabrics and modern designs, the kind of garments they’d look and feel great wearing outside of school.
We worked with schools and students to design the most contemporary and high-performing sportswear range in the market with one aim – to inspire students of any age, gender and body type to get involved in school sports with confidence.
Today, our APTUS sportswear range is the fastest growing school sportswear brand in the UK, helping millions of children to give their best in games and PE. Not only that, it’s transitioned to more sustainable fabrics too – reflecting our dedication to doing the right thing for the planet and future generations.
Gender-neutral, entry-level sportswear
Launched as a gender-neutral, entry-level sportswear collection, APTUS Essentials is aimed at both the primary and secondary school market and was designed to support children and young people who are gender diverse.
All products in the Essentials range can be coordinated with our Performance range, as well as made to order.
The APTUS Essentials Junior Collection combines modern design with functionality, providing the perfect solution for primary schools in need of a stylish PE kit that students look great in and want to wear.
The APTUS Essentials Senior Collection caters for secondary school students with garments designed to encourage participation and enjoyment in sports. The Collection offers additional items such as our Essentials Skort and Multisport Shirt to create a versatile sports kit for older students.
Outstanding school sportswear
Designed to meet the need for superior sportswear garments in schools, APTUS Performance provides students with an exceptional experience based on four core values – quality, performance, innovation and sustainability.
APTUS Performance products were designed to meet the diverse needs of today’s students and PE teachers. Every garment has a stylish aesthetic and overall distinctive look, no matter the activity. But most of all, they provide exceptional performance time and again, meeting the demanding requirements of school sportswear.
Designed using a combination of lightweight breathable fabrics along with 3D dimple mesh panels, all Performance garments are created to be comfortable, durable and high performing during physical activity.
We collaborate with students, teachers, fabric specialists and product professionals to continuously evolve the performance needs of our products and stay at the forefront of sportswear technology and innovation.
The Performance range is made using recycled materials, so students can look good while helping to do good for the planet too.
Designed with women and girls
In addition to our core range, our female-specific products were designed in close consultation with female PE staff and students to encourage participation with garments that flatter, boost body confidence and ultimately perform.
For schools in need of modern, innovative and bespoke sportswear, Orion teamwear has the answer. With high-quality garments that cater for a wide range of team and school sports, Orion is the perfect range for creating unique looks while still maintaining superior comfort and performance standards.
