    Our new school (built a year ago) is fantastic. The only thing I hate is way everyone changes their mind. For example, In the old building they started off with open space classrooms (three classes in one room with no walls). They then found it didn't work so they built walls to control it better. But then a new head came and decided, no, he wasn't having it in classrooms, he wanted it open plan. The new school, which cost nearly 54 million to build, now has an open plan design with lots of glass around it and light coming in- very nice, you may think. But in the summer holidays, guess what!? They're putting up walls! To be honest, I can't keep up anymore. But that's not the only change I hate.
    Exam boards, teachers, timetables, classes, tutor groups, subjects, times, head teachers, rules etc are constantly changing, and I can see it's disturbing both students and parents. It's also very confusing... Is anyone else facing loads of change at their school/uni? Does it happen a lot :confused:


    Here's the link to the company's website who built our school...

    seriously, they should have designed it better instead of rushing to get it done and bringing in change for everyone, every school year :-(
