    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

    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..
