Muslim pupils at Islamic faith school told inspectors they didn't want single-sex lessons 'because it wouldn't prepare them for life in modern Britain'
by Steph Cockroft
Pupils at an Islamic faith school told inspectors they did not want single-sex lessons because it 'wouldn't prepare them for modern life in Britain', the High Court has heard.
The Muslim pupils told a school inspector that segregation at school was having a 'negative effect', because it was not a reflection of life outside the classroom.
The comments were revealed during a High Court legal battle over a controversial Ofsted report relating to a school which cannot be identified for legal reasons.
The inspector told Mr Justice Jay that one young woman referred to it as 'dumb'.
