|What the School Want|
One of my daughter's alternatives for sixth for is to stay at the comprehensive she is at now, but in the sixth for they no longer have to wear a school uniform. They are however expected to wear a suit (in grey black or dark blue) or "business wear". She is appalled at thought that she will have to have maybe three grey suits, in her view they are expensive and boring. Yet I look at what I see availabel for women in this area and I see lots of great clothes at good prices. Shops like Matalan and Tesco have ranges that include jackets, skirts, trousers and dresses which all work together as suits. Of course she is unlikely to take heed of the old man's taste in clothes, but apart from that her bigest problem will be that most of the less expensive shops don't stock these sort of clothes small enough for her as they often seem to start at size 10, that and that her current favorite source of clothing Boohoo don't stock anything appropriate at all.
