Boys make school history.

A leading girls' school has made history by welcoming 25 boys to their sixth form.

Howell's School, in Llandaff, Cardiff, has admitted boys for the first time in its 145-year history.

But the boys, who started the lower sixth yesterday are still massively outnumbered.

There are 91 girls in their year, and 600 in the whole school, whose former pupils include Charlotte Church and news reader Lucy Owen.

Pupil Lucy Taylor, 16, said: 'We will get used to it really quickly because we have to, but for younger girls who see them on the odd occasion it will be like a new species.'

The school has insisted that only the sixth form is to be mixed, with 11 to 16 year olds still learning in a single-sex environment.
