The school has removed the uniform differentiating students by gender. Now any student can wear a skirt, trousers, a tie, a blouse or a bolero, a blazer as they wish.
In a statement, the school explained that its decision was made in response "to a changing society which recognises that some children have gender dysphoria and do not wish to lose their emotional gender identities at school. [Private] schools are usually seen as bastions of conservatism but Brighton College feels it is time to break ranks."
The schools even has a Gender Society that was launched by two students.
"It ties in with my strong personal belief that youngsters should be respected for who they are. If some boys and girls are happier identifying with a different gender from that in which they were born, then my job is to make sure that we accommodate that. My only interest as headmaster is their welfare and happiness," said the headmaster.
A good example to follow.
