British high school has banned Canada Goose, Moncler and other expensive luxury coats to stop students bullying other kids from lower-income backgrounds.

After a series of incidents involving students bullying other students from lower-income households, Woodchurch High School in Birkenhead, England banned children from wearing coats made by Canada Goose, Pyrenex and Moncler or other luxury brands.

Canada Goose sells a wide range of coats but some of their products can go for several hundred dollars, with some items even costing upwards of $1,000.

“There has been feedback from children, who say ‘Gosh, that is our rent for the month,'” the school’s head teacher Rebekah Phillips told CNN.
.

Reducing children’s anxiety from failing to keep up with latest fashion of their wealthier peers was one of the reasons given for the decision.

Administrators of the school, just outside of Liverpool, U.K., sent a letter to parents explaining the reason for the ban, which will come into effect after Christmas.
