A top British school is sbidding farewell to its 170-year-old uniform policy.

 

A TOP independent school in Britain has become the first in the country to scrap its uniform policy to accommodate transgender students.

Brighton College in East Sussex, a school for boys and girls aged 11-18 with around 1,000 pupils, now gives all students the option of wearing a skirt and blouse or trousers and shirt, regardless of gender.

The school 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”.
