Around 30 boys arrived in skirts at the Isca academy in Devon last week. As the temperature breached 30°C, they had asked their teachers if they could replace long trousers with shorts. They were told shorts weren’t permitted under the school’s uniform policy.

When they protested that the girls were allowed bare legs, the school said the boys were free to wear skirts too if they chose. Therefore, the boys opted for the attire. A few boys had gone the extra mile and also shaved their legs.
