Thread Name: BS: Girls' school trousers uk
Subject: RE: BS: Girls' school trousers uk
"there has just been a survey by (I think) Ofsted into school uniforms and they are saying that schools are not allowed to specify only certain shops...uniforms must be affordable and easily available. if I can find the article I read I'll send it to you. It was BBC."

aaah, but this is a grammer school - albeit a state one. They still seem to be a law unto themselves, though the uniform is reasonably affordable. They have a "uniform bank" at the school for second-hand stuff, which is probably how they get round the rules.
