Hi the cost of moving schools is quite expensive. Both my daughter 14 and son 11 have resently started a new secondary school. I had had to 2 full brand new uniforms which were far cheaper than I expected as blazers at there last school were £27 alone. How does my cost compare to your cost ??

caccy - Yes that's how my uniform was bought, Prove cheques, the original payday loans. As I remember it was paid back at a shilling for every pound borrowed for 21 weeks. Not quite the massive interest rates charged nowadays. I believe they now call them doorstep loans.

Ah, the Tallyman. I remember him well.

He used to call weekly to collect payment for goods purchased on the never never.

My wife's grandfather had a tailoring business where he went round and measured customers in their homes for suits and then collected payment plus interest on a weekly basis.

I agree with school uniforms. What is the alternative, a fashion competition with the wealthiest showing off. The days when you could only get them from one supplier are long gone. Should we abolish them for the army maybe or the air force or the emergency services and let them dress as they wish.

Here schools don't have uniforms apart from private schools and Catholic schools.

Having no uniform is more expensive than having one as the trainers alone many kids wear are $100+.

Uniforms definitely help to make everyone blend in and provides a level playing field.

how will the kids travel to the secondary by bus or car or train or all three or maybe walk

One at a time in massive 4x4 Chelsea tractors of course, these are modern times.
