WUS is the Under School.

There is no "Upper" - that is called "The Great School"

Yes, really!

The private school is STAHS

If HABS is just the boys' school ('Haberdashers Askes Boys School'?), does that mean that the girls' is HAGS?

I think they thought about it and chose to name it Haberdashers' Aske's School for Girls (HASG). :wink:

They changed it in the 1970s when they moved next door to the boys' school & it was pointed out to them :lol: :lol:

It is actually called HABS girls but the school itself tends to use the full name Haberdashers.

HAGS is not used by anyone unsurprisingly. DG
