A schoolboy resorted to using a microwave to carry his books in to school as his school banned sixth formers from carrying large bags to lessons.

However, the school then suspended Jacob for two days as he held a 'silent protest' where he brought his things to school in various items, including a wicker basket and a microwave.

“These people have been struck in the face or knocked backwards by our bags swinging around in the corridor.

"These bags are effectively part our school uniform and should be purchased once a year at a maximum.

The ban states: “Bags of any size may be used to bring books and kit to and from school, but bags are not permitted in lessons during the day.

“By not permitting backpacks, students are unable to carry revision materials to and from school with ease and therefore grades may dramatically decrease.”.

Parents took to social media to slam the rules, which left many youngsters forced to transfer their books from a bag into plastic carrier bags for lessons. »
