About XXV

You expect your students to give their all in pursuit of a top performance. But if they are to set new records and bring glory to the school, they must be equipped with the kit they need to break boundaries.

Stevensons recognises the need for performance sportswear specifically crafted to meet the unique needs of the UK schoolwear market. With our rich heritage of providing school uniform and sportswear of exceptional quality for more than ninety years, no one is better placed to meet this challenge.

"I have been incredibly impressed by the latest developments in the XXV range but the key for me is the excellent service we receive and our working relationship. For me, the honesty and trust between us is vital for an ongoing successful partnership."

Andrew Dalgleish, Director of Sports and Activities, St Edward’s School, Oxford

Service that delivers_


Our team understand the rigours of sport and the demands this places on school sportswear. After establishing what issues you are having with your current supplier or kit we work with you to design distinctive, hardworking garments that meet your school's precise needs.


Sportswear plays an increasingly important part in building a school's brand image. Working in collaboration with you and using state-of-the-art software, our expert in-house designers can create a choice of style options in just hours. Meanwhile, new printing techniques mean the possibilities to reinforce you school's identity are virtually limitless.


We don't expect you to sign off designs on paper - our European factories have quick sample turnaround times, giving you the opportunity to see and feel the garments themselves. And we will keep providing samples until you're happy and ready to trial them.

Designing your kit is as easy as A,B,C...

A. Choose a design style from our core ranges or we can create one unique to you

B. Pick a colour, any colour. We can create a range of colours, we can match to existing garments or start from scratch.

C. Add a badge and graphics. We can replicate your school badge and any other graphics (e.g. numbers, text) you need on different garments for any sport.

Our XXV performance sportswear has been specially created in a wide range of garments using the latest technical fabric innovations. It will ensure your students are well equipped for even specialist sports, as well as for the variable British weather. We leave nothing to chance.

With XXV, a zip is never 'just a zip' or a seam 'only a seam'. We know it's the little things that make good design great and no detail is too small for us to perfect.

“When putting together the range of staff kit and team-wear Stevensons were prepared to give the extra care and personal attention to detail needed in order to ensure that they meet the precise needs of the school.”

Fabrics that rise to the challenge_

We have poured more than nine decades of school uniform and sportswear know-how into the development of the XXV range.

Sportswear has evolved rapidly and XXV deploys the latest performance fabrics, which wick away sweat, are quick-drying and even help regulate body temperature. Items in the range are lightweight, last longer and are more comfortable to wear – with the crucial result that the wearer is likely to perform better.

Thermal Balance

The fabric wicks moisture away from the skin efficiently to help regulate the wearer's body temperature, allowing them to stay cool in hot weather and keep warm when it's cold. This helps improve both performance and recovery time.


Allows moisture vapour to pass through the material, helping the wearer stay fresher and dryer.

Wind Resistant

Two and three layered fabrics keep wearers warmer in the windiest of conditions.

Water Repellent

The garment's outer shell acts as a barrier to rain, delaying it from penetrating the fabric and allowing the wearer to stay dry and comfortable for longer.


Our fabrics are designed to be high performing without requiring specialist care. All garments are highly durable and can be machine washed as often as necessary.

Quick Dry

A specialist process applied to the fabric at the dyeing stage enables it to evaporate moisture away from the skin, keeping your students cool and dry.
