Change the Policy
The boys are hoping their protest will help change the school policy on shorts. Head teacher Aimee Mitchell told the BBC the protest has made her possibly consider a change to the dress code.
“We recognise that the last few days have been exceptionally hot and we are doing our utmost to enable both students and staff to remain as comfortable as possible.
“Shorts are not currently part of our uniform for boys and I would not want to make any changes without consulting both students and their families.
“However, with hotter weather becoming more normal, I would be happy to consider a change for the future.”
