The students went up in arms when the school administration decided to confiscate a bunch of photographs that were taken at the candidate class’s farewell party, which were found to be inappropriate.

The head teacher says the photos showed most of the students half naked.

The students were also incensed for being blocked from watching last Sunday’s English Community Shield clash between Manchester United and Leicester City.
