    Cargo Pants (trousers) and a dark polo shirt. I've also now been bought some awesome Steel Toecap casual shoe / trainers. Anti-slip, anti-static and steel rod along the bottom.

    Cargo pants are essential for all the crap I have with me. School keys, PDA, phone, tools.

    Standard here trousers, shirt and Tie (sometimes more know got air con in the office).

    In hols, non uniform days or if we are doing a very messy job like setting ict suites up etc (but that not very often) then it is jeans and t-shirt...

    Re: What do you & the teachers wear to work?

    I go through smart (shirt, trousers, shoes) and casual (jeans/combats, jumper, trainers) cycles depending on my mood. Anecdotal evidence suggests I get more done when casual, mainly because I'm less self-concious about my appearance / more comfortable.

    The head occasionally half-heartedly grumbles about the casual cycles, but my boss (deputy head) is of the "so long as the job gets done and he's not naked, it doesn't matter" viewpoint.

    Shirt, Tie, Smart Trousers etc etc.

    Though to be fair we should be wearing protective suits (the kind you'dd stereotypically see a nuclear power worker wearing). If not to protect us from the 50,000 years of moondust all over the place but to save me from getting ill every 10 seconds from the students/teachers.

    Standard Shirt, Tie, Trousers combo here - not always tremendously practical, but the professional image is important.

    There is a distinct lack of other males in several of my schools too, so I have to stick to the accepted idea of men's work attire as I have no-one else to compare with or to be an ally!

    Then the obvious solution is to turn up in a summer dress.

    Hehehe. I was watching 24 (I think either series 3 or 4 - very good BTW for anyone thinking of getting it) last night and a terrorist with a gun was pretending to be an IT Technician. My brother said "I wonder how many technicians carry a gun" and my reply "Ideally, in a school, it should be all of them for protection against the staff".

    Smart in term time but without a suit jacket, just gets grubby or damaged, unless we have a visitor then it comes out. In the hols its smart casual in or if im doing a messy job during term time then it also comes out.

    Re: What do you & the teachers wear to work?

    I wear a suit hear on a day to day basis, but if its going to be a mucking out day then generally jeans / tracksuit bottoms and polo shirt with school crest stitched into it.

    As others have mentioned its generally casual during school holidays.

    Re: What do you & the teachers wear to work?

    Just a quicky (maybe a poll could be added or made a seperate thread but I don't think thats worth it) but how many of us are given / forced to have school branded clothing EG polo shirts etc, I see a few mention it that they have them and wear them, just wondered if its forced or given and you choose to wear them?
