The boys of Exeter schools have finally won the right to bare legs in the hot summer months.
The open rebellion at Isca Academy in Devon where the boys donned skirts in protest at the school rules that insisted they wear long trousers even at scorching temperatures had been successful.
The school’s icy resolve, last but not least also the due to the international exposure of the boy’s protest had finally melted.
Now, the Exeter school announced that the boys can choose to wear shorts instead of their long trousers. The school’s headteacher, Amy Mitchell, just sent out a message to the parents saying that shorts will be allowed of the only from next year on. To the relief of the boys involved in the protests, they also won’t be punished for their “skirt protest”.
