Parents’ fury at school which has removed wall from girls’ toilet block and ‘put CCTV camera facing cubicles’

A school has removed the wall of a girls’ toilet block leaving only the cubicle doors between users and other pupils.

Parents of children at St Mary’s College, in Wallasey, Merseyside, have slammed the open plan redesign, with many concerned about their daughters’ privacy.

A video shows the toilets, which are set back off a corridor, facing what are believed to be two classrooms and a CCTV camera, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Parents have claimed their children have been told the wall had been removed in a bid to stop smoking, bullying and pupils skipping class by hiding in the toilets.

The high school is a voluntarily aided academy for 11 to 17-year-olds – meaning it is not run by the local authority and is self-governed.
