– Dr Rowena Blencowe, headmistress of Trentham High School
In today’s papers it’s reported that Trentham High School, Stoke on Trent, announced that as of September, school skirts are banned, and all girls must wear ‘business like’ trousers instead. The reason being, that it is not pleasant for male members of staff, and acts as a complete distraction.
We ask if it’s right to ban skirts in school. Joining us to debate the subject, is Dr Rowena Blencowe, the headmistress of Trentham High School, who believes that banning skirts is the only suitable option, and former teacher, Richard Riddell, who thinks that a blanket ban on skirts is a cop out and shows lack of discipline!
