Good Schools Guide to examine how 'transgender-friendly' schools are

International Teaching


“Over about the last 18 months or so, I have noticed this issue building up,” Ms John said. “Families are coming to us when they feel they are left with no option but to pull their transgender child out of a school”. She said that in the future, inspectors from the Good Schools Guide will quiz headteachers on how they cater for transgender students. “We had an editorial conversation about this a few days ago,” she told The Daily Telegraph. “It will be something that we ask in the round of questions about pastoral issues. We would certainly be asking headmasters about this.” She said that the Good Schools Guide is now drawing up a list of schools all around the country that have a good track record

for dealing with transgender issues. “If a school is utterly outstanding, we might make a point of mentioning it in the review,” she said. “We would also share the information between us and inform all our consultants. “Some schools are making fabulous efforts. But we are still seeing issues where schools are effectively asking children to leave by saying we have no policies on toilets or uniforms, we cannot cater for you.”
