A SCHOOL has banned fake tan.

Ulverston Victoria High School sent a text to parents this afternoon saying students would be banned from wearing fake tan by the time they returned from their half term break on February 25.

It said: "We would like to advise you that from Monday 25th February, fake tan worn by students will no longer be acceptable.

"Wearing it will be considered an infringement of school uniform policy.

"We would be grateful if you could support us in this and reinforce it with your children."

The Mail is trying to contact the school.
