Just run all my searches again and the news is - there is no news! Last year, there were two January bans and a further two starting in September that had been announced by this point (one of which was later withdrawn). This year there's nothing apart from Castle Vale and even that's not certain.

Even the number of bans threatened in letters that I've picked up - and only a minority are detectable - has fallen from 6 to 2. Don't know if this is a trend or not.

Just for the sake of posting something new, one curiosity my summer searches threw up is Catmose College in Rutland where they've introduced a near ankle length skirt (see here). Looks odd.
