I have recently bought one of these calculators as i am doing a level maths, it was required for me to get one. Its just that there are a few extra things that you can do compared to the other calculators. But if you are not doing a level maths then i dont think that it would matter too much.

Just googled the 991EX your school offers that looks sharp, nice display get that.

Also graphical calculators can store info & are banned at universities so would only be usable on A-levels. Also it takes so long putting the equation and stuff into a graphical calculator its not worth it, almost no real advantage, the exams are designed for standard calculators, if it can do table, some 2 or 3 variable equations even better.
