    School in Lewes bans girls from wearing skirts in new PC drive

    Parents have criticised a school which has banned girls from wearing skirts.

    Priory School in Lewes says from now on, all new Year 7 pupils must wear trousers.

    Headteacher Tony Smith brought in the measure to deal with complaints from parents about short skirts and to make the uniform gender neutral for transgender students.

    Instead of wearing a grey skirt, girls must now must wear grey trousers.

    But some parents feel angry trousers have been enforced at the school, which is rated good by Ofsted."

    Outrage!

      shirely the point of being transgender is you get to express yourself as another gender?
      Daily Mail readers are living in a perpetual hell, expecting their homes to be overrun at any minute by hoodie wearing, skunk smoking, muslim, transgender, asylum seekers.

      Seems reasonable to me.

      Why are the trousers angry and why does Osted rate this a good for them to be angry?

      Feel sorry for younger generations - girls having long hair and boys having short hair will be the next taboo.

      I would have been very disappointed if this had been implemented when I went to that school.

      FFS ... how do schools continually get something so simple so utterly wrong? Seriously, it's easy. Just define the colour and leave the style optional (within defined limits, such as minimum skirt length). That's what I had when I went to school 20-something years ago in Australia, and it blimin' well worked.

      Thought about putting a proviso in for this gag but decided to let it ride.
