Boys in skirts protest

Boys in skirts?! This is a pretty unusual kind of protest.

Pupils at one school in Essex got hot under the collar when they were told they couldn't wear shorts, despite the sunny weather.

Instead of wearing longs, one teacher joked that they could wear skirts. So around 30 of them did just that...

The head of the school said "Shorts are not currently part of our uniform for boys and I would not want to make any changes without talking to both students and their families. However, with hotter weather becoming more normal, I would be happy to consider a change for the future."
