I concur with other reviewers. This School has a regime of bullying which appears to permeate throughout the various school years. My granddaughter has for some time endured verbal bullying which recently descended into physical bullying. Complaints to Management have all fallen on ‘deaf ears’ with total inaction on bringing the perpetrators to account. Leadership is inept and their ‘zero tolerance’ policy on bullying is ineffective and useless. We have withdrawn our Granddaughter from this school permanently and would strongly advise parents to view other schools before placing their child there. It is not safe.
They seem to purely focus on the uniform and not the students themselves. Surely the length or width of your trouser leg does not effect your childs performance/learning!? Times have changed therefore the school needs to change! Try concentrating on teaching, getting to know and understand your students instead of constantly pulling them up on uniform. A bullying situation was not dealt with appropriately at all. Fighting happening all the time, not a nice safe environment for any student in my opinion. Definitely gone down hill!!
Okay. If I could move I would. This school haunts my nightmares. The teachers couldn't care less, the school is in poor condition and the kids here are honestly just straight up horrid. If you want to come here, don't. Take it from me, dont. You will 100% get a trauma here whether it be from student, teachers or something else. If your mental health gets bad, you think you can turn to "wellbeing" but you can't because they don't care about you ;) Good luck in some other school because you don't want to go here.
Seeing as I mysteriously cannot view my own review on the Google page any longer, nor write another, I will post my truth here.
Do not send your children to this school.
I myself used to be a student once, and the experience was awful. Teaching in itself was good, however the biggest issue with this school in general is the lack of safeguarding and pure negligence of the anti-bullying policies.
When I was at Henry Cort, due to me and my friends not fitting in with any of the more popular kids, we were bullied continuously throughout the school years. This resulted in poor grades and severe confidence issues due to being terrified to enter the school grounds. We were physically assaulted by the students who picked on us and terrorised every break and lunch, and nothing would come from it. When we retaliated, it was we who got the punishment.
Now my siblings go to this school and it has gotten worse. Physical assaults have become more frequent and staff are refusing to allow bullied students to vacate the grounds at a safe time/space. Nothing ever seems to be done and it is effecting mental health. It is truly saddening to see.
One rule for the bullies and another for the less fortunate. Disgusting.
Not a single day in that school do I not think about leaving the class. They prioritise good results over actually controlling a class and often just wait until they can send the misbehaving people to Ready To Learn. Aside from that, the ********* is something out of a children’s book, absolutely nasty. You don’t want the children in your school to be scared of you or hate you- so why take pride in a community in which your own staff dislike you. If they gave the students more freedom with how they look, where they’re sat etc, they wouldn’t have half the school wishing they weren’t there. Think about the students, not how everyone else sees them
