The BBC is reporting that four teenage boys wore skirts to school in protest at being disciplined for wearing shorts on the hottest day.
The year nine students at Longhill High School in Rottingdean, East Sussex, were among about 20 boys who wore PE shorts instead of trousers on Tuesday.
Some were sent home, and others kept in isolation and excluded the next day.
When the four boys turned up in school skirts on Thursday, head teacher Kate Williams said they could “wear any part of the agreed school uniform”.
The mother of 14-year-old Michael Parker, who was one of the group, said three of the boys were initially told to remove the skirts, but all four of them kept them on.
Quite an unusual tale! Did the school take the right action here, or should the boys have been allowed to wear skirts? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or via Twitter ~ Jon
