The parents of two girls are furious with a school which excluded their daughters because their trouser legs weren’t baggy enough.
Jane Ogden said staff at Barnsley Academy in South Yorkshire have been measuring the width of pupils’ trouser legs since last week.
“Less than ten centimetres is a breach of school rules apparently. It’s totally ridiculous,” said Jane, of Worsbrough, whose daughters Ellie, 14, and Mollie, 12, were excluded for two days.
The Academy’s website says: “There is an increasing number of students wearing tight fitting trousers. Tight fitting trousers are unacceptable and are not allowed in the academy.”
