FGM conference for private school pupils held as teachers warn against avoiding issue
by Anna Davis
London's private girls' schools will today teach pupils about female genital mutilation in a bid not to "shy away" from difficult issues.
£14,000 a year Croydon High School is hosting a conference for sixth formers at other private schools after a pupil flagged up the issue.
Dr Comfort Momoh, who runs the FGM clinic at St Thomas' Hospital, will speak to girls about the horrific procedure that affects 66,000 women in the UK, with a further 24,00 girls at risk.
