A school is to review its ban on shorts after seven teenagers who think the policy is unfair turned up for class - wearing skirts in protest.

The pupils are frustrated that despite temperatures in Britain soaring to 30C girls can wear skirts but boys have to wear long, tailored black trousers.

Rather than sending the skirt-wearing pupils home, the Ferndown Middle School governors listened to their plea and agreed to review the uniform policy next month.

The boys at the Dorset school have also been told they can wear their PE kit in school until the heatwave is over - or carry on wearing skirts

Amie Steverson, whose son Joshua Knight took part in the protest, said: 'He was talking about this a few weeks ago when it was hot and said he would wear a skirt.

'I thought he was joking but when I realised he was serious I bought him a skirt. My son is the sort of person who voices his opinion and I think it was very brave of them.

'All the children were laughing and I think they got a lot of attention.

'Some of the younger boys in Year 7 said they would do the same thing so I think the teachers just decided to let them wear shorts

The school could install airconditioners in the boys-only class rooms.

Hey Seneca my old mate

They could, but English law they would have to have it on the bus to school too, and a teacher running behind them when they get of the bus fanning them down until they get in class. If not the school will be sued
