The Interim Executive Board of X, R (on the application of) v Ofsted [2016] EWHC 2004

Not discriminatory to segregate sexes in faith school

In an administrative case concerning education, the High Court has held that an Islamic faith school which segregated male and female children from the age of nine did not unlawfully discriminate on the ground of sex contrary to the Equality Act 2010. There was no discrimination because both sexes, not just one sex, were being denied the opportunity to interact, etc.
