Separate boys from girls

Alun Jones, the new head of the Girls’ School Association, has suggested that boys should be protected from the classroom domination of girls by being taught in single-sex classes between the ages of 11 and 16. In an interview with the Sunday Times, Mr Jones said teenage girls were intimidating boys in schools nationwide by being cleverer and keener in class. He believes boys should re-join girls in education in the sixth form. The so-called “diamond model” of education has been shown to boost academic results.
