Logo skirts I haven't heard of before.

Around £100-£150?

It would be easier for you to look on the school website or Henry Smiths for a more accurate idea, I think schools vary in prices.

I spent about £180 for everything Inc shoes and non uniform stuff.

The two academy schools my son has down for choices 1 and 2 have a link to their uniform shop on their website. We are in Leeds.

We don't have blazers thank god but a jumper is £15 for a year 7 child, tie £6, rugby shirt £18, tracksuit bottoms £10, tracksuit top £15, coloured house polo shirt £12, Pe shorts £5, football socks £4.

All these are logo ones which they have to have.

Does that help?

Logo Blazers - £35
Logo skirts -?
Pe shorts logo - £20
Pe tshirt logo - £20
School tracksuit with logo - £75

When DS1 started Y7, I think we spent at least £250 on uniform and £150 on other equipment.

We paid £200 off for the logo'd stuff (had to buy trousers & shirt in addition) but it was the sports kit that was a ridiculous price and he has yet to wear all of it grr

Logo blazer - £20
Tie - £2
Here skirts and shorts are plain black and can be bought anywhere
PE polo shirt £8
PE sweatshirt (optional) - think this was about £12
Rugby shirt £16, total waste of money as he's never worn it

We have only one shop that sells it and the queue in the last weeks of August has to be seen to be believed. They sell uniform for all the local primary and secondary schools and it means there's a lot of parents trying to be served.

I buy in July.

It might be worth asking the school if they have nearly new uniform sales because you can sometimes pick up a bargain!

nearly £300 for all of DD's kit, including PE kit, the lot. Bit less for boys except they seem to wear out shoes faster. [peeved smiley]

Logo Blazers - £32
Logo skirts - no logo but the recommended skirt is £15
Pe shorts logo - plain black and about £4 I think
Pe tshirt logo - £12
School tracksuit with logo - logo on hoody - £15, everything else is plain black so can be bought anywhere.

Our local school supplier is Simmonds in Tunbridge Wells. They supply a lot of schools, and have a website. It would give you an idea.

Read & weep for dozens of replies last yr.

In our area state school uniform is virtually as expensive as private school uniform

Logo skirts seem to be the new thing.

ChippyMinton Sun 02-Mar-14 21:01:34

Blazer £36. Or buy the badge and stick it on a superior quality m&s blazer at £22.

pe t shirt and sweatshirt £20 a pair.

rugby shirt £27

Huge variety: DDs middle school kit (all logo sport kit too) was £300. Now she's in Seniors it was more like £180, as the sports kit comes from a certain shop but isn't embroidered so they can sell to more schools.

Our is very affordable, but they only have to have blazer, clip on tie and PE kit - the rest can come from anywhere.

A full set of the essentials for DD1 comes to about £50 and has so far lasted almost 2 years, very good value indeed. Guidance on what type of other schoolwear is permitted is sensible too.

Some schools take the mick, the Free School in the next town has uniform well north of £150 for the minimum, and that is in a very deprived town. sad
