And just a few weeks ago, the independent Stephen Perse Foundation in Cambridgeshire, which includes Perse Girls – the inspiration for St Trinian’s – announced it would admit boys into its junior school from 2014, and into its senior school from 2018.

You don't get this with guys – if guys have a problem they'll sort it out straight away.” Charlotte Avery, headmistress of St Mary’s, now the only all-girls school left in Cambridgeshire, is (unsurprisingly) adamant that a single-sex education does not leave girls behind: “We find that separating teenagers during the school day during the years of greatest personal and physical change certainly removes one factor in an already complicated mix of hormones, self-discovery, social pressures including digital media and three sets of public examinations in three succeeding years.” But, I ask, don’t girls need to learn how to live in “the real world” – i.e. “The 'real world' is different to the 'teenage world' precisely because young people are in an interesting and often challenging interim stage of their development between childhood and adulthood,” Avery explains. didn't mature – I think we would find much more segregation in the adult/ 'real world' also!

Some women I speak to think it was pretty abysmal in all-girls' schools; others think mixed education led to both genders showing off in front of the opposite sex, which completely aggravated tensions.

Durham University law graduate Alice Macris, who attended an all-female convent school, and then a co-ed sixth form, says that girls were actually nastier in a mixed environment.

Interestingly of all the women I spoke to who attended single-sex schools, none would rule out single-sex education for their (future) children, unlike my mum.

Many were very positive about it, citing those ever-important grades.

But something makes me wonder when it comes to single-sex education if my mother made the right decision for me.
