Transgender pupils to be allowed to switch accommodation at boarding school

Gordon’s School in Woking is drawing up guidelines that will also allow pupils to be known by gender-neutral pronouns, such as ‘zie’, use gender-neutral toilets and grow their hair long if they are boys.

Self-confessed ‘psycho b*tch’ sent naked photos of lover to his wife and kids Several pupils at the school have explored their gender identity, with one pupil who was born male allowed to wear light makeup and a dress to his school prom.

Deputy head Rob Pavis told The Sunday Times:‘Parents of pupils were surprised by how open-minded we have been. Most schools are having these issues.’

The school is one of a number to alter its guidelines to reflect the needs of transgender pupils.

He said: ‘Pupils have been saying why do boys have to wear ties and girls don’t, and girls have different uniform to boys. ‘So we decided to have the same uniform for everybody from Year 7. ‘Another issue was that we have a small but increasing number of transgender students and therefore having the same uniform is important for them.’
