    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 ??

    My kids uniform cost
    school jumper with school logo £11 x4 2 each
    school polo shirt £9x6 3 each
    black school trousers £7x4 2 each
    daughters school shoes / plain black lace up pumps £3
    sons school shoes / plain black lace up pumps £3
    pe top £10 x2 1 each
    pe jumper £12 x2 1 each
    pe shorts £10x2 1 each

    Well that's wrong as my kids school has the cheapest uniform in the area but the best ofstead rating
     
  10. I'm showing my age here but In the mid 90s the cost of the blazer for my girl's high school was £65!..at the time I was more than happy to pay it believing it to be a top school but it turned out to be not so good after all .. .So that unwritten rule may very well be wrong..
