gcse

love<3

the school is great and the teachers actually care about you not just your grades and uniform. the community is brilliant and i wouldn’t go anywhere else. my only complaint would be that the mental health support varies from student to student and is not at all consistent.

Brilliant school, amazing friends, but limited GCSE options and the skirts are so restrictive :(

Love the school, despise the uniform.

As a student currently at Pates, I absolutely love it. The teachers are so supportive (for the most part) and I do not feel at all pressured. But the best bit is the extra curricular stuff. We learn current affairs, a range of unusual sport, we rock climb, we have the opportunity for air rifle shooting, and it is all available to everyone. Even people like me who live miles and miles away. The canteen food is pretty good, and the student body as a whole is beyond friendly and welcoming. My only complaint would be the girl’s uniform. We have to wear LIGHT grey skirts which are NOT AT ALL forgiving when it comes to periods. Not only this, but they are pencil skirts, leaving us no room for running around or even sitting on the floor, forget actually being comfortable. Furthermore, when we are in PE kit, we are not allowed to wear our skorts alone. Thus, even in the middle of the summer, we have to wear long black trackies to ‘cover up’. Like what?? This is 2021. Come on.

A great school

It’s a fantastic school, the teachers are lovely and they really help you to achieve good grades. There isn’t too much pressure from school, especially in the younger years where we are left to enjoy house events and sports:

You won't find better teachers

Although many in my year liked to complain about the teachers putting 'too much pressure' on them, this is absolutely not the case. The teachers at this school are absolutely incredible and work so hard to provide all students with resources and extra help when they see that they are underachieving in comparison to their true ability. When students cooperate, the staff ensure that everyone reaches their full potential - there's a reason the GCSE and A-level grades are so high after all. For students who want to be put in the work and achieve highly, there's no where better to go. I feel so lucky and blessed to have had such friendly, clever and down to earth teachers when I was a teenager.
