A stitch in time for Cambridgeshire school

One Cambridgeshire school has come up with an elegant solution to a long-running uniform feud, and may inspire some of its students to learn to sew in the process. Cambridge News reports the dilemma faced by Comberton Village College after some students started arriving for lessons in unacceptable 'fashion' trousers including skinny-legged and flared styles. To stamp out the inconsistencies in uniform, the school initially told all parents to buy new trousers from a single supplier, who would provide them embroidered with the school's initials. But this met with understandable resistance from parents who felt they were being penalised, having already bought non-embroidered trousers that complied with the old policy. Now the school has struck a compromise, after investing in a sewing machine that will allow the initials to be embroidered on to existing trousers that meet the uniform policy. Head of school Peter Law told the newspaper: "If a pupil comes to us and says the trousers they have been using have been approved by us previously we will embroider them to save parents buying another pair." "It's a simple and effective solution for parents, pupils and the school," he added - and it may just inspire some students to learn to sew their own embroidered garments, too.
