    Ms Leonora ('Call me Leo') Titcomb, Head of Winnie Mandela Primary School, Hebden Bridge, has cropped hair, wears dungarees and is a member of the Labour Party and CND. She has abolished competitive sport and introduced 'gender neutral co-operative activities' because there shouldn't be any winners or losers and 'no-one is better than anyone else'. She has also abolished grades and thinks reading and writing are 'middle class, male dominated and Eurocentric'. Maths and science are also sexist and irrelevant because most of her pupils are going to stack shelves or work as Deliver drivers, so 'who needs to actually know anything and knowledge is just a white patriarchal middle-class construct anyway'.

    Leo's pupils celebrate Eid, Diwali and Winterval. They have a multi-faith and no-faith assembly each morning where they sing 'Baa Baa Green Sheep' and 'We Shall Overcome'. There is no uniform although Palestinian scarves are encouraged.

    ... Leo's partner is the Rev. Drabitha Dripwell, vicar of St Jeremy's, where she prays to 'God the Mother' or sometimes 'God the Whatever' because 'She or He is kind of like non-binary really'. She is obese with untidy hair and wears fingerless gloves knitted by a women's collective in Peru. Her congregation sit in a circle instead of pews because it's 'non-hierarchical' As there are only about 10 of them, it doesn't matter. In the Socialist Republic of Heaven, everyone will become gender-neutral and equal in every respect. 'It's a bit like a huge recycling centre,' she tells them. After the service they drink Eritrean Fair Trade Coffee.

    Leo and Drabitha live with six female cats and a neutered greyhound.

    Well they usually do like water, I suppose.

    In the Infants School it was just our underwear, while in Junior School it was t-shirt and shorts, and Comprehensive School it was the same or a tracksuit so one's legs were covered up in the cold weather - it wasn't exactly like uniform as such, meaning that they didn't have to be the same colour.

    And of course, swimming trunks (swimsuit for the girls) for swimming lessons.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Underwear and black sandshoes in first school
    First three years of high school, the regulation white polo shirt and pleated skirt with shorts underneath in school colours and trainers
    last two years of high school - whatever we wanted. Alas it was the era when a shell suit was the garment of choice 🙈

    Our geography teacher was cricket mad and would come out to the field on a sunny summer lunchtime in full whites and pads and had the older boys bowl at him with the challenge that if he got bowled out (not caught) he would give the bowler a fiver.
    that was a fortune in those days.
    i used to go to my aunties for lunch so by the time I got back into school premises everyone Had tired of trying to bowl out the teacher, I asked for a shot and got him out first ball.
    teacher claimed he wasn’t ready and didn’t count
