Two Birmingham Islamic schools have been reported to the Government for segregating boys and girls on their premises.
The Avecinna Academy in Bordesley and the Wisdom Academy in Nechells were flagged up for 'sex discrimination' by education watchdog Ofsted.
Avecinna was found to be practicing segregation across year groups, including during breaktimes, while Wisdom was said to be "failing to prepare students for life in modern Britain".
Ofsted inspectors said in their reports that the mixed sex schools were in breach of the Equality Act 2010.
At Avecinna, an independent school for up to 100 pupils aged 11 to 17, boys and girls were found being taught on separate floors of the building.
