Ghaziabad:

Single-sex education is better for teenage girls as it takes the pressure off to try and impress boys in a “sexualised world”, the headmistress of one of Britain’s best boarding schools claimed.

Rhiannon Wilkinson, head of Wycombe Abbey in Buckinghamshire, suggested it was best for girls’ education to grow in a “boys-free” environment.

She added single boys hold girls back because girls mature faster.

“My wide educational experience in both mixed and girls’ schools has shown me clearly that girls are best served educationally in their teenage years in a boys-free work environment,” she was quoted as saying by the Telegraph.

“Most psychological studies suggest that girls and boys develop at different rates and that girls are far in advance of boys through the teenage years: it is in a girl’s best interest to be educated separately, at least until boys catch up with her,” she added.

Wilkinson said another benefit of an all-girls education is that they can focus on their education without the distraction of wanting to please boys.
