There old school was a lot more expensive but I think my kids new school is cheap because it's a basic uniform and they even allow cheap plain black canvas lace up pumps as an alternative to school shoes.

There's not even any PE kit there, both my kids schools ( now left) had logo branded everything , rugby top alone cost more than your spend above for a set of uniform . Fair play if you get get away with it on that budget, but surely at their age you need to wash their tops every day, so I don't know how they are coping on two each

Amazingly cheap.
You're lucky your 14 yr old daughter will wear £6 shoes, round here they all want and wear kickers or the like.
Clarks shoes cost in excess of £40, where and what sort of school shoes can you buy for only £3

You're back are you? Been a while since you posted a school uniform post. Yawn!

Exactly what I was thinking! Lol

What I want to know is WHY is this person so obsessed with cheap canvas school shoes? Do they want someone to start an argument with them about how bad they are etc?

I don't have children, but that is pretty cheap compared to most other schools I went to!
