    Ours was Sine Honore Nihil--Without honour I am nothing--or that is what we were told it meant.

    Both my Schools had Logos/Emblems and both was equally as crzy I think. The first School hasd a very very posh Horse on the Blazer pocket (sadly the School amounted to a lot less) and my 2nd oe had some strange thing that amounted to the Town (on the seaside I lived in and some old Motto) linked with the Town that had never been used for ages! Why that Schools can not think of their own is crazy I think (in why such things are linked)! Though I am glad our Ties thankfully never had Emblems etc on them as, as much as I like dressing nice Ties as so like the patterned ones remind of cheap imitation Oxbridge ties you can buy!

    I don't know why but something struck a chord the other day and I recalled at my first Secondary we had a choice of Sky Blue, White or Grey Shirt/s

    Was this unique to my School I wondered then and occasionaly have before too!?

    Ours was Sky Blue only, but could be any kind of shirt, so some people wore normal shirts, some grandad shirts, some button downs, some tie downs etc.

    I am so glad we was'nt allowed Grandad Shirts Mulletino How horrible they appeared before their 90s resurgence they used to be in the 80s, I found

    I recall they made a real comeback around 1997/98 though as everyday Shirts and was cool in that respect!! A few lads in my Year - even in First Year/Year 7 woreDenim Grey ones and somehow got away with them .... though I am talking some of the hardest/toughest guy's in each Form and Year!!

    From the 70s wore black blazer and trousers. Black shoes. Still have the striped tie. Then for some reason that I cannot recall I began wearing gola trainers and even began wearing football boots with studs.
    Some students wore Farah trousers.

    At secondary school, for me 1973-1978, there was a space on our annual report where the form teacher would grade your appearance i.e. your adherence to the uniform code and general cleanliness/tidyness. For some reason I got an 'A' for the 5 years I was there, though I suspect that it would take someone turning up in clothes a scarecrow would be ashamed of to get any other grade.

    My last secondary school I attended we had no uniforms; we were allowed to wear anything we wanted to

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it. We would annihilate each other

    It seems every secondary school had at least one teacher who used to ruthlessly implement the uniform policy.

    There was one at mine, but I never managed to fall foul of him, though it helped I tried to stick to the rules & was was based in another school building.

    There are a couple of posts where it states there was a uniform in primary school. Except certain schools, Catholic, Private Etc., I don't think uniforms came about until the mid 1980s. Most of these uniforms corresponded with uniforms in the secondary school. This being that if a pupil needed to replace an item of uniform, the money would not be wasted come September. In recent years there has been uproar over schools bringing in a policy of a school logo being worn on certain items of clothing. These sometimes can only be bought from one outlet that is registered to supply this logo. Often a certain member, or members of staff or school governors, have a vested interest. I'm glad this policy did not exist when I was in comprehensive school. The chances are, I would have spent day after day in "confinement". The only time I ever wore anything with the school logo, or badge, was on the tie.
    Who cared about rules when you were young?
