Secondary schools
I doubt it, come spring and covid will become no more in the news than the flu (I hope) to keep putting the country into lockdown would be to keep seeping away at the economy, the education system, the health sector, etc... it would do more harm than good.

Schools? It's entirely possible as teachers have got the taste for non-work. They have militant unions and will play it up for as long as they can, because they are (as a group) lazy and feckless.

Probably, though I doubt it this time around.

Yes. The entire school age population and their parents. At the hands of lazy, left-wing teachers.

I'm not bitter toward teachers. I'm simply pointing out that they are mostly lazy, feckless commies, who have done almost no work for the last couple of years using covid as a figleaf. The same people who used to bang on about how every single day in school was vital and going on term time holiday was a terrible crime.

Oh dear, I know exactly what's happened.
You have not been to a school in years so the only information you get about what a school is like is through these nonsense, manipulative right wing media outlets which use a simplistic, tribalistic narrative to get their point across.
The point being that our values and freedoms as a country is under threat and the aggressor is the regressive left which are corrupting schools and destroying politics.
To any person who is even slightly rational, this narrative is rubbish. Schools, colleges and universities are not overrun by obsessive, pansexual, non binary, fem-persons despite what they tell you. Almost all students DO NOT care about gender and certainly not politics. Most are completely oblivious to world issues and just worry about their own problems like exams and friendships... teachers are impartial as they have always been. There is no 'gender studies' being taught to anyone and there is no 'blackwashing' of history class. Schools and colleges are the least politically correct places on earth by both the students and teachers. My 3D Design teacher has just recently started betting on whether one of his tutees will become a school shooter.
I reckon you should stop it with the Talk Radio and Nigel Farage and start worrying about the real world.

Well, i disagree.
I did my teacher training last year and let me tell you, i have not come across a single teacher acting the way you have just described.
But go off i guess, carry on being bitter.

What bit of the above relates in any way to the fact that teachers have done almost no work in the last two years? What on earth does that have to do with your rant about what you view as the right-wing?

By "the way you have just described" I expect you mean "not working".

Tell me then about how teachers have been working like say - people who work for Tesco, McDonalds, DPD, Amazon etc. Tell me how teachers have definitely not manipulated fear-porn to do as little work as possible.

To answer OP's question, I think that it's unlikely as it would do more harm than good to let year 13's into uni without sitting any formal exams.

I don't blame him, based on the amount of teachers who were absolute ******s that I was unfortunate enough to get taught by.

Schools have been back for ages and before they were, kids still had lessons from home...

Because the nonsense you are being told is not an accurate representation of what the education system has been like.
Teachers have done an extraordinary amount of work in the past two years. All of the teachers I've had, have put an enormous amount of effort into providing educational material, online lessons, online lectures, they've marked work and helped students who needed help even during lockdown.
No, I have absolutely no problem with 'the right wing' or the left wing because I know that politics is more complex than that and you can't group all of the people who could be called 'right wing' under one box while moaning at all of them like they are the same. As an increasing number of people are doing with 'leftists'
My problem is with misinformation and you have been misinformed.

Schools have been on and off since they got back, huge numbers of teachers did little or nothing for online lessons. I doubt you will find many people who would say that what was delivered by teachers was anywhere close to what they could have done. And they continue to try to dodge work. It's their way.
