Absolutely agree. If anything, I think single-sex education was detrimental to my growth and development. I always got on better with lads, and therefore felt isolated in an all-girls school. It totally reinforces gender stereotypes and you find in college that a lot of students who haven’t been with people their age of the opposite sex, ever, just don’t know how to behave around them.

Another argument is to how demoralising, embarrassing and soul-destroying it is to students of the LGBT community, particularly transgender students
