Muslim family taking Thornton Heath Greek Orthodox school to High Court over hijab ban
by Gareth Davies
A Greek Orthodox school is being taken to the High Court for banning a Muslim pupil from wearing a headscarf.
The nine-year-old girl's parents were so incensed at the decision they have pulled her out of St Cyprian's Greek Orthodox Primary Academy, in Thornton Heath.
Now they have applied to the High Court in an attempt to force the school – the only one of its kind in the country – to reverse its ban on their daughter wearing a hijab.
