John Lewis Cotton PE Shorts

Product information

Whatever sport they’re into, these shorts will keep them cool and comfortable. Available in a choice of three sporting shades, including a versataile bright white, they feature an elasticated waist and wide leg for extra practicality.  

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 4.5 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by What about the waist tie? I had previously purchased 2 pairs of these shorts size 11-12 (Ref 532267) and was very happy with them. I have just purchased another 2 pairs size 13-14 (Ref 53226726) and am disappointed. The reason is that tie around the waist on size 11-12 is useful so that you can tighten the waist, however on the size 13-14 it is just a cosmetic addition that doesn't do anything! The waist is therefore a bit loose - so it is a pity there is no size 12-13 available. 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by P.E. Kit Essential Good sturdy cotton, they don't shrink when washed. The size is standard. They might need pockets but is not a huge miss. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value great quality These wash really well, a good quality item. Have found these to be much cheaper than other brands on the market. 16 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by White PE Shorts Just what I was looking for, straightforward plain white PE shorts Many seem to have little logos on etc. these are just perfect! Arrived quickly, fit well and a good price. 04 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Way too big I bought a 7-8 thinking they would be a bit bigger than the 5-6 I had previously, but they are much larger. I ended up having to buy from another store. I would recommend viewing before buying. The quality is good though 24 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits well. Good long length, better than others I have tried. They also wash very well. I have these in all 3 colours. 27 September 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely Quality for the price we were really pleased with the shorts which arrived promptly. They washed well depsite having mud on them. They were so nice that unfortunately someone else thought so too and they were stolen from my son's PE bag. I will have no hesitation in ordering these again. 27 September 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by great product but ! These are lovely fit and suitable for school P.E. kit. The only little issue I would have would be the fabric is a little thin therefore they are a bit see through, although I have to say it doesn't bother my child 12 September 2012
