its ok i guess

I'm in year 9. Currently, it's not that bad and the foods are sometimes good and sometimes bad. The education they give is great but the teachers just love giving us detentions and are strict, another thing that is strict is uniform. I hate it so much im going to cry, the trousers are uncomfortable and the tie has to be a certain length, skirts certain length, not allowed to take blazers off, this is horrific and there is just so much racism going on in this school to the point where its normal and teachers dont do anything about it. Ok sure yeah, they make assemblies about it but that doesnt do anything because that wont stop the words i recieve from the students.

Everything wrong with burnt mill

The only reason this school gets any stars from me was not for anything they had done specifically merely out of the friendships that we forged over our five years stuck together in this abusive cesspit.

Where do I start? I joint Burnt mill a happy go lucky kid, a tad bit free spirited but a good kid none the less. The staff didn’t like this they didn’t like kids expressing themselves they liked conformity and suppression of what makes you you. By the time the five year stay was done none of us could say we were truly happy or positively impacted by anything provided here.

Bullying is spoken a lot by the staff if I remember correctly however they have no clue what bullying looks like let alone how to stop it when it happens they created such a toxic environment where popular kids were allowed to bully and harass others and be told nothing when it was caught. Big surprise considering I myself was bullied by the then head of ********** department who made fun of my lisp not sure if he still holds that role but I would assume so.

The school is simply a grade factory they wanted students to get good grades but the extreme workload expectations put on students coupled with the belittling of lower achieving students tells me they only wanted themselves to look good

I won’t even go in to the horrific racism and homophobia I had seen first hand which was reported and not dealt with. do your kids a favour and find another school

good luck

guys save yourself and don’t go to burntmill😀 like don’t. teachers and students that go their are horrible . If your getting bullied then GOODLUCK cause your gonna need it cause teachers don’t care. All they care about is if the girls skirts are rolled up orrr if the ties are to short. LIKE HOW IS THAT IMPORTANT. HOWWW is that going to change how i learn. Noww lessons are just as bad, i’m not saying that every teacher is bad butttt most of them are. Don’t take a language YOU DONT NEED IT!!! even if they say you do, you don’t. everytime i pass by that school i feel so good that ive left. i finally feel free.

Reality of Burnt Mill Academy

How to sum the school up. “Shithole”

Attended this garbage years ago and I still get bad memories when passing by the building.

If you get bullied there, good fucking luck because the teachers there won’t give a shit.

That teacher in pastoral office? Mrs Williams? A fucking bitch. That attendance lady? Mrs Carol? Your average Karen.

Had depression while attending and as bloody expected, the school doesn’t give a flying to fuck.
