Schools sends 150 girls home for wearing skirts that are ‘too short’

Up to 150 girls have been sent home from a
school for wearing skirts that were deemed
“too short”, it has been reported.
The students were returning to Tring School
in Hertfordshire for their first day back
since the summer holidays.
ITV reports that girls whose skirts did not
reach their knees were pulled aside by
teachers and then placed in exclusion or
picked up by parents.

The news has sparked backlash on social
media, with one Twitter user asking: “Why
can women still not wear what they want
when they want?!”
All this stuff about Tring school & skirt
lengths makes me so angry, why can
women still not wear what they want when
they want?!

Another called on the school to “free the
knee.”
Sending girls home because of skirt length
is more beneficial than attending their first
lessons according to Tring school….

The mother of a 13-year-old girl whose
skirt was deemed inappropriate told ITV: “I
think the school have been very heavy-
handed. My daughter was wearing the same
skirt as she wore last year. I sent her to
school believing she was in the correct
uniform.
“I find it ridiculous that girls have been
excluded from education today because of
what they are wearing.”

In response, head teacher Sue Collings said
that the school had previously warned
pupils and parents that school uniform
rules would have to be adhered to this
September.
Ms Collings said: “If a student or parent is
unhappy with the policy in respect of the
school skirt then they have the choice to
wear tailored trousers.”
