    I had to get a new school skirt this week, a new blazer and a new tie and I just can't believe how much it was. I never remember it been this expensive before. I think they must think they can cash in on us 6th formers!

    Skirt - £38.99
    Blazer - £64.50
    Tie - £17.99

    That just seems a total rip off really.

    I had to have a new blazer as we have an honours system with an honours blazer and tie which is a different colour to the rest of the school and I just got awarded honours. Some honour - just get charged for it.

    omg my uniform costs fifty quid. im going to ***** about this, even though i wear it every day and therefore save masses of money on any other clothes i would be wearing, and because this is a major issue which deserves public attention!

    They're not that expensive. Mine were about that price and were good quality and comfortable. Considering your going to be wearing it 5 days a week for 2 years I don't think thats a bad investment really.

    Mine was the price of shirts, jumpers and trousers in ASDA, plus a £5 school tie and £3 to have to emblems put on.

    If I bought them from the school it would have cost at least 5 times as much, for exactly the same things.

    my parents spent £400 at the start of year 7 for my stuff.... was like 5 shirts, 2 skirts, 2 jumpers.... and then the PE kit of a polo shirt, skirt, running shorts, knee high socks, leotard, jumper and joggers. Then obviously had to keep replacing it all as I grew out of it or lost it! I think it served them right for sending me to the school they did rather than the school my sister went to >.>
