Here's my experience with private school - people will either think you're a cunt, or they'll not bat an eyelid. That's going to be based on your personality, not the way you dress. Schools like that are full of rich kids, so you won't be anything special. Learn to stand on something more than blatant displays of your wealth and hopefully you'll do okay.

For that matter, since when are Brits familiar with the American show "Suits"? My troll-dar is going off...
College is pretty common in the UK, it refers pretty specifically to either sixth form, or to places you can get vocational diplomas like a BTEC or GNVQ.
