English teens discuss the pros and the cons

School uniforms are fairly common in England, Britain in general. In fact, they have even become more common in recent years, as some schools have reintroduced them. But in all schools, both teachers and pupils have different views on the question – and probably they always will do. Freeway interviewed students at a girls-only high school in the middle of England, where all students except those in year 12 are obliged to wear a uniform.

RACHEL: Well I think they're a good idea, because you don't have to decide what to wear in the morning. You just get up and put your uniform on. You don't have to think 'Oh no, what am I going to wear today?' So I think they're a good idea. There's no competition either between the girls and whatever!
ANITA: It distinguishes you from other schools! Like our uniform's totally different to the Glede* uniform, it's a lot stricter. It just makes you stand out. It makes you look like a community, rather than just normal people, if you know what I mean!

FREEWAY:Abnormal people?

ANITA: No I didn't mean it like that! Just like everyday people on the street, that aren't at school. You can tell that you're still at school, in education. I think it looks really smart as well, and then we get a lot of people sayin' how nice we look...

SARAH: Don't you think though that by wearing a certain uniform, the people who see you, they're going to identify you with the school, and have a stereotypical attitude about you. It's like people think about skinheads; they all dress the same if they want to belong to that group, and people immediately think they're all going to be hooligans, but it's not necessarily true.

ANITA: You don't necessarily lose your own individuality by wearing a uniform; there's still something special about yourself as a person. Just because you're wearing the same things, it doesn't make you all the same; it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. Don't worry about things like that!

SARAH: There's another thing about uniform though; even if everybody wears exactly the same, they're all going to look different, because the same uniform isn't going to suit everybody. Therefore people who are a bit overweight or whatever, get ragged about it something rotten; I mean they do in this school, because our uniform is so unflattering for anybody who's a bit chubby!

EMMA: I think people should have the chance to be individual when they wear clothes... It's like we're being forced to conform to something we don't want to do. Now we're in the sixth form, we don't have to wear uniform; but I can remember in the first year, second year, even if you like just stepped out of line slightly, by wearing different coloured socks than what you were supposed to, they really came down on you. It was really bad. They seemed really piggy as well.

KATIE: I think that by putting us all in the same uniform, they're somehow trying to suppress our own identities; and they're saying like 'oh we all have to look the same, we all have to think the same.' That's how it seemed to me lower down the school anyway.

SARAH: I think, um... I came from primary school, and we didn't have to wear a uniform there; and coming to secondary school and wearing a uniform, I don't know, I really enjoyed it, I used to be proud of it, of wearing it. But I think, yeah, there are faults in it, but I think there are the advantages as well!

KATIE: I think that here sometimes, more emphasis was placed on the uniform, rather than our work; for instance, I got caught once by Mrs. Parker lower down the school, for wearing a too short skirt! And she's been after me ever since! So there you go! I prefer it now that we don't have to wear a uniform, but in actual fact, I didn't really mind wearing it lower down the school...

* The Glede: another school in the same town.
