British School Boys Show up to School in Skirts to Beat the Heat

When the weather warms up we like to exchange pants for shorts.

However shorts were not an option at Isca Academy in Exeter.

Female students are permitted to wear skirts, however male students are not permitted to wear shorts, only long pants.

A group of 50 to 75 boys sent their school a message by showing up wearing skirts.

Temperatures have been in the high 20's and low 30's this week.

When the boys complained about sitting in full dress pants and layers during this heat, the head teacher told them they could wear a skirt if they liked.

The school has since relaxed their dress code  for the remaining school year. Students are now allowed to not wear ties and can have the top button on their shirts undone, they are also permitted to wear their shirts un-tucked if they are feeling very hot.
