It is now illegal for a co-ed school to segregate sexes. This has been confirmed by the recent decision of the courts - which has divided opinion. The Association of Muslim Schools sought to appeal the decision - but its application has just been rejected. 

So where does this leave co-ed schools who segregate sexes? They are left with a stark choice of reintegrating sexes, opening separate boys' and girls' schools or doing nothing - but running the risk of facing litigation.
