A small 13-18 school in Hertfordshire has become the latest to ban the wearing of skirts by girls. Buntingford based Freman College is to impose a trousers-only rule on new pupils in September 2012, with all under 16 pupils to be affected in September 2013 (see here for details).

As ever this site asks, is this even legal under the new Equalities Act, with its emphasis on gender equity (as well as gender equality)?
