(TELEGRAPH) — A Christian family is preparing to sue their sons’ Church of England school after boys were allowed to come to class wearing dresses.

Nigel Rowe, 44, and his wife Sally, 42, removed their six-year-old son from the unnamed school after a male classmate was allowed to attend the primary school in a dress.

They intend to educate him at home on the Isle of Wight alongside his eight-year-old brother. The older boy was pulled from the same school – which has a uniform – a year ago when a boy in his class also started wearing dresses.
