The 5 inch rule basically means that boys and girls are supposed to keep their distance from each other when at the girls school - especially in the corridors, eg. no holding hands, no enthusiastic hugging etc. Not allowed - not a good example for the younger years, it might warp their little minds :rolleyes: Only enforced by the stictest of teachers though, and no one cared in the common room I'm sure.

And the school is in Stamford - in Lincolnshire.

lol a lot - the grammar school i went to was far more old fashioned ..... i have met some of my fellow classmates recently and it seems to me that the school has had some affect on their psycological state - aka they're ****ing weird.

some of them are gay too
And some people from mixed schools are gay too

People have this strange conception that single-sex education seems odd and old-fashioned. I don’t think co-education works; it reinforces gender stereotypes rather than break it. It’s also been found girls in single sex educational settings are most likely to take interest in fields men dominate; our school specialises in science now and has many students in the mixed sixth form taking classes in physics and maths. It just gives you more freedom to explore your own interests and abilities which i loved. Other than that, it’s the same socially – trust me I went to a mixed school when in America.
I have heard that girls show their interests and abilities better at a single sex enviroment.

Maybe we should have single sex schools everywhere in the UK * can hear the alarm and loud protests* But recent research has demonstrated that single-gender classrooms benefit boys as well, and they have been falling behind girls in education here.

Was five inches a random measurement or was it carefully thought out?

I perosnally think teachers are not really bothered with the older ones, most teachers just let them off. Like in our school
Only the really horrible ones tell you off still
