She said the gender neutral roles would provide “a welcoming atmosphere for all”.

But the move was blasted online. Dave Campbell wrote: “God help us. Teachers need re-educating. The genes don’t lie. Male or female, boy or girl. Cannot be anything else.”

Diane Williams added: “No wonder our teenagers have mental issues, they don’t know who they are anymore.”

Mrs Lucas, head of Bolton St Catherine’s Academy in Greater Manchester, said in a letter to parents: “We recognise and celebrate diversity and inclusion.

“We are delighted to be able to showcase our commitment to this by thinking about how we address our lead student ambassadors — moving away from the outdated notion of a head girl and boy.”

She adds that “with many other initiatives around school, we are signalling our resolution to be an institution that is welcoming to all.”
