Is school uniform old fashioned and unnecessary?

Girls at a secondary school in Buckinghamshire are being banned from wearing skirts next term.

Year 7 to 11 girls at John Colet School in Wendover have been told to wear trousers from January because of some students wearing uniform that's too tight and short.

Headteacher Christine McLintock says she's been forced to take action because of the image being portrayed to the local community.
