Brighton College scraps uniform rules boys to wear skirts and girls to wear trousers if they wish.

Brighton College scraps uniform rules for transgender pupils
It ties in with my strong personal belief that youngsters should be respected for who they are'

Private schools have long taken a strict approach to uniform. With a tie knotted not quite right or a skirt pulled too high, a pupil could expect to be hauled into the head’s office.

But now the 170-year-old Brighton College, regularly named among the top 10 schools in England for academic results, has ditched the usual hidebound insistence on tradition to allow boys to wear skirts and girls to wear trousers if they wish.

The move is in recognition of gender dysphoria, when an individual feels there is a mismatch between their biological sex and their gender identity.

Richard Cairns, headmaster of the boarding and day-pupil school, said they had decided there would continue to be two different kinds of uniform, but pupils could choose which one they wanted to wear.
