John Lewis Cotton PE Shorts, Black

Product information

Whatever sport they are into, these shorts will keep them cool and comfortable. Available in a choice of three sporting shades, including bright white, they feature an elasticated waist and comfy, wide leg.

As well as finding the correct uniform, make sure they're ready for work with the right School Stationery. If your child is just starting out at school or still in the earlier stages of education, they might need extra comforts to keep them engaged with learning. Have a look at our Children’s Stationery to make lessons fun.
Kids can carry all of their stationery and books in one of our school bags and if they’re taking a packed lunch to school they’ll want a Lunch Box with a cool design to keep their lunch fresh.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent PE Shorts I bought these shorts for my son, for his start at senior school. They are a good fit, tough but quite soft cotton fabric and were a very reasonable price. have bought these before for my daughter and they are excellent. 13 October 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Voluminous shorts I sized up as usual in john lewis for my tall skinny 6 year old. The shorts fit on the waist but are big everywhere else with loads of material. It's a shame as the fabric is good. 27 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely material Bought the 5-6 for my very tall Son which fit lovely and should fit for the next School year. The material is lovely and ideal for PE at this age 17 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for school Nice to find cotton shorts instead of usual nylon ones. My child finds them very comfortable and they are so easy to wash, no need to iron them. 20 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect just the job spent ages looking for black shorts for girls rugby, they only seem to do them for boys which are generally to big at the front these fit nice and look good 13 November 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value Top quality cotton shorts at a keen price. Hard to find anywhere. Have purchased for my two boys for school PE kit, so much nicer than the polyester football shorts other shops sell. The boys also use them for rugby and they have survived many a scrum. Would highly recommend. 18 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Good quality and low price. I bought shorts for school for my son.Good quality and low price.Very good service. 05 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Quality and practical looking for school PE kits is not easy but having found these easily online I was impressed with their quality and how easy they are to put on which is essential for a 4 year old. 25 September 2012
