Gym club banned from holding classes at girls school after Muslim parents complain about boy members
by Tom Kelly
A gymnastics club was forced to stop holding classes at an independent girls school after Muslim parents complained about boy members of the group.
Colin Perry, who runs the Shirley Gymnastics Club, said he was saddened by the decision which he said compromised the school's commitment to multiculturalism because of fears of offending a minority.
He is now desperately searching for a new home for the club's 250 members - including 36 boys - which had held mixed-sex classes at the junior school site of Old Palace School, in Croydon, South London, since January last year.
