Pupils at truant school to get Savile Row suits by Prince Charles's tailor to boost morale

A school with one of the country's worst truancy records is issuing its pupils with Savile Row suits.

Tom Mahon - tailor to Prince Charles - has designed suits to replace the replace polo shirts and sweaters worn by the 750 children at the Manchester school.

The Savile Row touch is being applied as part of a rebranding exercise that will see Parklands High School in Wythenshawe transformed into the Manchester Enterprise Academy in September.

The school has languished near the bottom of the league tables for several years and was the third worst in national truancy tables published in January.

Parents will be asked to contribute
