Primary's Class of 2008 Is an All-Boy Affair

This year's foundation class at a primary school in Exmouth, Devon, is made up entirely of boys.

For the first time since Bassett's Farm opened in 1978 there is not a single girl among the class of 20 four-year-olds who began school this month. Christine Jones, the head teacher at the school, which draws pupils from across Exmouth, said: "I have never known anything like this. There are sometimes more boys than girls in a class - and vice versa - but never all the same sex. It just seems to be one of those freakish things.

"It is pretty incredible and quite sweet really." Mrs Jones declined to be drawn on the behaviour of the boys in the absence of girls, saying only: "They are not a bad little group of boys but they are boys."
