Ofsted chief Sir Michael Wilshaw has warned of gender segregation among teachers in Muslim independent schools.
Inspectors had found male and female staff and governors were being divided in Luton's Rabia Boys and Girls School, the education watchdog's head said.
Last year, Sir Michael wrote to the education secretary with "serious concerns" about staff segregation.
He has now written to her again, warning it continues to "actively undermine" equality in schools.
In Wednesday's letter, Sir Michael told Education Secretary Nicky Morgan that inspectors "expressed their concern when, at the initial meeting with inspectors, the school insisted on segregating men and women through the use of a dividing screen across the middle of the room".
