A trend that originated in America, leavers hoodies have been a popular way to mark the end of a cohort’s last year at school or college for many years in the UK now.
As a result, there are lots of companies where you can order leavers hoodies from. Some may be the same company that you order school uniform from, while are specialists in the supply and design of tailor made, bespoke leavers hoodies options.
Is your college a bit different?
Maybe your Ofsted reports are excellent. Maybe your students are impeccably well behaved. Perhaps they even have an outstanding rate of attendance, or get involved with lots of extracurricular activities.
These are all great things that many schools and colleges strive to achieve, but not necessarily what sets you apart as being particularly different.
Differentiating factors can include having somewhere different for your sixth formers or college students to relax, or work in peace when out of lessons. Or somewhere for them to work in a noisy atmosphere if they prefer to listen to music when working. It could be allowing them to sit on the floor instead of at desks, or to stand up whilst writing.
Whatever it is that makes your school different, wouldn’t you want this to be reflected in the item of clothing that your leavers are going to treasure and wear for years to come?
Think like a leaver when personalising hoodies
The main point of having a leavers hoody is for college students to remember what they were a part of and who they shared their college years with.
Now, put yourself in a leaver’s shoes – if you are sad to leave and have taken pride in being at your college, would you want your leavers hoodies to be the same as every other college in the area? Of course, it will be personalised with the college name and most likely the word ‘leavers’ but having something that stands out and looks unique can fuel a leaver’s sense of pride towards their college, long into the future.
