Brighton College: School Polyform

A top independent school has scrapped its uniform code in order to accommodate boys who identify as girls outside school and vice versa, breaking with hundreds of years of tradition.

Brighton College said it was “reacting to a changing society which recognises that some children have gender dysphoria and do not wish to lose their emotional gender identities at school”.

“Public schools are usually seen as bastions of conservatism but Brighton College feels it is time to break ranks,” the school said.

Richard Cairns, the headmaster, told students this week that uniform codes going back 170 years will be replaced by a “trouser uniform” and a “skirt uniform” for all pupils up to the age of 16.

Now scrap school uniforms... and public schools!

PS Richard Cairns is great at these publicity stunts, my fave was him saying Tom Daley could have a free scholarship.

  1. As long as the new ties are not made from polyester; other wise they may give way, come the revolution. I am glad you're back. x
