Rated 1 out of 5 by Snoozy Split keeps splitting!
I bought this for my 11 year old for starting secondary school as she wanted a more grown up style. We had no problems with fit and it looked very smart. However, at the end of the first week, the stitching above the split opened up as she stepped into the car. I repaired it but the seam has again opened up while she was at school. Very disppointing - will buy a replacement in a different style as from other comments here this seems to be a common problem with this style.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Janie G What a waist!
I bought this in size 12-13 for my 14 year old daughter to replace her previous M&S skirt which is no longer sold. It is a decent length (just above the knee) and fits at the hips, but the waist is huge; we're talking aliens, mutants or perhaps maternity wear. Unlike her previous skirt, this one doesn't have an adjustable waist - it doesn't even have a proper waistband. The material is okay. Please bring back a range of bog standard school wear. No pelmets, tube skirts or fancy details please - they don't comply with schools' uniform policies. Please remember that all children, whether they are chunky monkeys or skinny Minnies need uniform, so adjustable waists are essential. Disappointed this year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by moomingoz For curvier girls
My 3 girls aged 11-14 all tried these on but none fitted. The waist is too large and can't be adjusted; the seams are curved to follow hips and thighs. My girls haven't got these curves yet so the fit is all wrong. Quite disappointing, we're struggling to find straight skirts

First one fell apart. Having read the mixed reviews I thought I'd give another one a go. So far so good. Perfect length for a school skirt. Marks & Spencer's you need to stock more of this style instead of the pelmets that you've been stocking.
