A transgender pupil who was threatened with suspension when she turned up to school wearing the girls’ uniform has emerged triumphant after hiring a solicitor to fight her corner. Sixth former Lily Madigan, 18, from Chatham in Kent, was born male but decided to start wearing the girls’ uniform as part of her transition.  But she was left devastated when school bosses threatened to suspend her from St Simon Stock Catholic School in Maidstone,

Kent, for wearing the ‘wrong uniform’ earlier this year. She was told that along with not being allowed to wear the girls’ uniform, she was also not allowed to use the girls’ toilets or changing rooms. But Lily decided to fight back and launched a petition online where 200 fellow pupils backed her cause. FULL REPORT
