A school sent a letter home to parents to warn it is refusing to provide litter trays for any pupil 'who might want to identify as a cat.'
The 1,000-pupil high school - boasting a string of famous alumni including Hollywood star Sir Anthony Hopkins and international rugby players - wrote to parents 'regarding the use of litter trays' alongside toilets.
Baffled parents received the letter to say there would be no provision for 'pupils who might identify as an animal of any kind.'
Council chiefs said that special treatment for any pupil who identifies as 'an animal of any kind' was 'not acceptable.
Ofsted later carried out an inspection of Rye College after an intervention by equalities minister Kemi Badenoch.
Mrs Badenoch urged Ofsted to take action over alleged 'safeguarding issues' and claimed the teacher, who told two 13-year-old girls there are 'lots of genders', breached the legal requirement for political impartiality in classrooms.
