Girls' Permanent Pleats Skirt is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 183.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from School requirements Ordered size 13 to 14 for my 11 year old granddaughter as I was worried about the length. Super style and fit but way above her knees. M and S really need to understand that most comprehensive schools have become very strict about uniform. Children with skirts that are too short are sent home. This was not the case 10 years ago when your buyers were at school. As a company M and S could make a fortune if they realised this. The young assistant I returned the skirts to agreed and told me that was why her sister couldn't use M and S. Please sort this out for next year! Don't say buy long ones as I did and it was exactly the same length!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too short for school regulation length These skirts which I have purchased for a number of years now have always been of excellent quality and value for money but it appears that M&S have changed the length of this standard fit skirt. Whilst my daughter is probably slightly taller than average these skirts have always been long enough for on / below knee school regulation length but not this year and I notice from reviews I'm not the only parent to comment on this. Whilst there are two longer lengths available to buy online nearly all sizes are out of stock which is most frustrating and suggests that maybe the demand for the longer lengths is so great because the standard skirt has been made too short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They get shorter each year!, I have always bought my children's uniform from here as it is always good quality. What I don't understand is why my daughter's 12-13 skirt is shorter than last years 11-12 skirt in exactly the same style? My normal sized daughter wears the skirt and it is 4.5 inches above the knee! If you look at any school prospectus it will state that skirts should be knee length or just above but not 4.5 inches above!! Your longer length options have been sold out for months. Doesn't that send a messages? Please restock the longer length skirts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pleated girls skirt Have bought this same style of skirt since 7yrs age unfortunately it’s been changed this year the 12-13is the same size waist as. 10-11 , orginal purchased 11-12 the design has changed there is now a zip in the skirt as well as the adjustable waist . No point my daughter is 10 very slim , however had to now get 12-13 due to the changer in the waist for ages 11-12 upwards , it’s not a good thing and sort of stuck with the fact has a zip , making this 12-13 size the fact the 10- 11 size waist is larger Than the 12-13 because it’s adjustable is ridiculous looks like no movement in this at all no need to change it

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tiny waist I have a slim and very tall 10 year old who has worn these skirts in the past. I ordered size 12-13 to ensure it would fit in length but bizarrely it is so tight around the waist that I have had to send them back. Usually on clothes I rely on the elasticated bits to make the waists smaller for her so this is truly astonishing and add into the mix that 12-13 year olds are starting to become a bit more womanly you would truly need to be very skinny to fit these comfortably.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What's happened to length this year? I bought this skirt last year in age 5-6. It was a great fit for my tall 5 year old, and I could adjust the waist as she is on the slim side. All great, skirt washed well, pleats stayed in. Ordered the 6-7 this year and when she tried it on, I thought it looked very short. Bearing in mind the height sizing on 5-6 clothes is 116cm and on 6-7 clothes is 122cm, I was expecting the skirt to be around 6cms longer, to account for a child growing. The skirt is only 2cms longer! Ridiculous! How many children only grow 2cms in a year, no wonder it's already half way up her thigh. The slim fit version is no better - in fact, it's exactly the same size - length and waist. Come on M&S, you've got great quality uniform, just please make your sizing make sense from one year to the next.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality but returned due to length I ordered this skirt in a larger size as the waist was adjustable and I hoped it would be long enough to fulfil my daughter's school uniform requirement. Unfortunately although the waist was perfect the length was well above her knees! I am finding it very difficult to find a long enough skirt and she is not exceptionally tall. They just seem to give more waist room as the age increases but no allowance for height? The skirt was nicely made and would be fine if your school is okay with short skirts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from too short I bought the "next size up" for my daughter - aged 12, ladies size 10 - tall and shapely. So, there are no size details for the 29" waisted skirt shown on the website - so I took pot luck. It's the same size as her last year's 14-15 age and a lot shorter - 3 inches shorter. Hopeless for a 5'4" school girl. The longer length versions add one or two inches.....Going back to M&S for a refund. And if this website gets any slower it's going to stop.
