Muslim boys' school bans women from applying for job as science teacher
A Muslim boys' school is facing claims of segregation after advertising for a temporary science teacher but making clear that women need not apply.
The advert published by the outsourcing company Capita requested a "Male Science Teacher" to cover lessons, including some mathematics classes, until the end of the current academic year on a short term contract for up to £150 a day.
Secular campaigners said the advertisement was just the latest in a series of demands for religious customs and practices to be "accommodated" in the education system as a result of giving faith groups the power to run schools.
