'Pupils are outraged after a secondary school banned skirts as part of a new gender neutral policy.
From September 2019 pupils at Appleton Academy in Bradford, West Yorkshire, will be made to wear trousers.
A letter sent home from headteacher Helen Jones said the ban was also to stop girls hiking their skirts up to inappropriate lengths.
But girls at the school are considering getting a petition together in a bid to reverse the decision.
One year 10 student, who didn't want to be named, said: 'I think it's absolutely ridiculous. I really don't like having the choice taken away from me.
'I like wearing a skirt because I find them comfortable, not for any reason other than that.
'Some people say that wearing a skirt makes you look like a tart and things like that - it's just a piece of clothing, I don't understand.'
One of the pupil's mother, who also wanted to remain anonymous, said: 'I think it's disgusting and actually sexist. They're not going to go and force the boys to wear skirts.
'Women from all the generations before this one wore skirts without any problems, what's changed now?
'What's really annoying is that the first any of us heard about the change was on social media. We didn't get the letter until a day later.'
The academy has 1,300 pupils from aged from three to 16, but it is only the secondary pupils who will be affected by the ban.
The school has been reviewing its policies since being placed in the 'requires improvement' category in its last Ofsted report in 2016.
Exceed Academies Trust, which runs the school, said: 'A letter has been sent to parents this week and will be followed up before the end of the year informing of this change, in order to allow families as much time as possible to prepare for the start of the new school year.'
