(TELEGRAPH) — Traditional girls’ schools risk going out of fashion amid fears they are no longer seen as the best place to prepare daughters for a “world of men, marriage and career”, it was claimed today.

All-girl schools could be pushed to the margins as pupils increasingly reject the “reserved” surroundings of single-sex education in favour of mixed classrooms, according to the editor of The Good Schools Guide.
