Ah right. Yeah I worked with Gilesgate a bit but it was a long time ago.
My friend is male and got told off for having hair gel in. The lady teachers have to wear skirts or dresses no trousers and they don't teach evolution. When you walk into the reception of the main Emmanuel school in Gateshead there are lots of pics of famous figures including scientists but no Darwin. Also the pupils get fined £5 for chewing gum or walking on the wrong side of the corridor. Needless to say when I taught some of their kids they went mental as when they get freedom they can't cope. Also fringes for girls aren't allowed but have to be Kirkby gripped to the side and one plain elastic bobble can be used.
So strict it's laughable!
