Rated 4 out of 5 by Eglinton Great hard wearing skirt out of stock
This has been a great skirt, have ordered it for a number of years now. It is a simple hard wearing skirt which continues to look great throughout the year. My daughter is a tall 15 year old and I have always ordered the extra long length for her as she is required to wear a knee length skirt at school. Why then at peak uniform buying time is this skirt out of stock in many of the sizes ? (And has been for some weeks now). Come on m&s if you only going to make it available online please ensure you don't run out of stock !

We have purchased these skirts every year & always order the longer length as find girls school uniform bizarrely short nowadays. I see some retailers are selling shorts for girls to wear under uniform; just make the uniform a decent length & shorts not required!
Daughter is tall & slim; correct age ordered. For the skirt to fit around the waist, the elasticated waist has had to be made a lot smaller resulting in daughter not being able to then pull it up or down easily over her hips (which are slim).
Ordered next size up which has a zip

My daughter has used these skirts for years. Each year we replace with the next size. This year we went up a size however noticed the length was about 2 inches shorter. I know there is a longer length available however is out of stock in all the sizes age 9 upwards which is probably due to the fact that the new skirts are too short!

I buy these each year for my daughter who is tallish for her age but slim . I buy a size smaller with the extra length which works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheHouseElf Great length
Had initially bought the standard length skirts of these for my 11-year old in preparation for secondary school in September, but we found the standard length way too short. She's not particularly tall - actually one of the shortest in her year, so not sure why the standard length has been made so short.
This longer length version is much better - hangs just below the knee - and gives some growth length as well, so we'll get some wear out of them.
Adjustable waistband, which is good for us, as our daughter is on the slim side.
Haven't worn or washed yet, but hoping that M&S quality well serve us well.
