Rated 4 out of 5 by NICOLAG Long skirt
Like many parents the need to find a decent length of school skirt has meant that we had to go for the 'long' length as the 'normal' length stocked by M&S is just too short and does not comply to school requirements. These 'long' ones are a good length for my daughter who is average height for 13yrs, slightly too large on the waist for her liking but she has been able to adapt with the elastic tabs without too many complaints. They wash and iron well.

Well made, quality fabricand lovely design. Good elestic in the waistband. Length is short however. please can you give parents a choose of skirt length as the skirts are always very short and look inappropriate for school setting ( and for walking to school) - some girls are often tall nowadays.Thx

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Long School Skirt?
This skirt fits my, slightly taller than average, 11 year old daughter around the waist, however the length is not 'long' at all.
It has proved to be impossible to buy a knee length skirt and I would like to request that M&S look into providing such. The school requested the length, and it is not the only school that does so - why do retailers not supply them as such?
regardless of whether the girls do that thing of rolling up the waist band in order to shorten the skirts #!# the requirement is for knee length. I am sure this is not the only comment you have received about the issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GGlala Extra long school skirt
Most schools require knee length skirts for girls attending however most shops including M & S sell short skirts as the 'normal' size. It was good to find M & S offered a longer option but it still did not reach my daughters' knees. My daughter is 5'5'' and 11 years old. The skirt purchased was from the 15-16 year old age range so I'm not sure what will fit next year. Hopefully M & S will provide a better fit by then!

So pleased this was a good fit after trying 2 other sizes and lengths. My daughter is very tall and slim and I have always found it difficult it to get a skirt that fits her well. Either too short, too long or too baggy at the waist. XL long was too long, this is about right. Has adjustable waistband and looks smart.
