PickledFanjoCat Fri 26-Oct-12 15:28:42

I don't know any such folk. So I'm not sure if they deserve a light strangle!

It's a term that makes my teeth itch too. I think some people think that the term "private" sounds too exclusive so they use the term "indie" because it conjures up images of lots of free spirits hanging out in a cool sort of way.

rather than kids in sodding boaters?

Oh god yes, I hate the word Indie.

It does make you sound like knob.

Is it as bad as calling a university a "uni"?

usualsuspect3 Fri 26-Oct-12 15:39:32

You see 'Indie school' all over MN, so it's not just about one thread.

MaureenCognito Fri 26-Oct-12 15:39:40
