A group of boys in the United Kingdom, showed up at school wearing short skirts after they were sent home for wearing short pants on a very hot day.

The incident unfolded at the Longhill High School in Rottingdean on Thursday.

Four 14-year-old boys, George Boyland, Jesse Stringer, Kodi Ayling, and Michael Parker, wore the skirts to school on two consecutive days.

On Tuesday, a group of 20 boys showed up at school wearing short pants as the temperature reached 86 degrees. The principal told them to change into long pants, but they refused.

Some of the kids were sent home while others are kept in isolation.

The children’s parents expressed their outrage as the school’s website states that students are allowed to wear short pants when the temperature rises.

The principal allowed the boys to wear the short skirts in school as they are part of the approved uniforms.
