While the education was semi-good from the few ‘golden star’ ‘s worth of teachers, the others were disrespectful, distrusting and downright rude. I was publicly shamed for a piece of work I did and my mother was so offended and ashamed she called them up and had to make a lengthy argument. The only time I woke up wanting to do was when I actually had 2 of the teachers I liked - any other time I would wake up dreading my day. DREADING. The food was overpriced and it was disgusting. The “breakfast” was yesterday’s stale toast. At one point, there was a rumour the kitchen had set fire trying to reheat one of these stale pieces! One of the teachers had problems with his anger that ranged to making children cry and throwing equipment, and only left 4 years after that incident took place. The mental assistance was APPAULING - I was once told I was “tired” when I explained I was feeling suicidal! It was ridiculous. There was maybe 3 times in my 5 years of attending that I actually enjoyed it. Every day was a drag. It’s terrible. If you want to develop mentally and physically, DO NOT go there.
Spent most of my early years in the school (7-9) without a permanent maths teacher. It was very unorganised. The school does very little for people suffering with undiagnosed mental health issues as well as children that may not have disorders that are as noticeable as others. Whilst I were there, a teacher threw a book at a student and a chair at another student. It was rumoured that a teacher slept with a higher education student and the current teachers have such a large ego that they treat students with almost little to no respect. They also don’t really help with insight to what you want for your future and how colleges/apprenticeships/sixth form works unless if you’re attending their sixth form specifically. They also don’t deal with racial slurs or homophobia and just name it as a “disagreement”
