    I would give mine 9.

    EDIT: Even though I'm at a private school, which technically makes option 9 invalid.

    OMG, such a bad school, with such bad grade statistics... (when I was in years 7-11 anyway)

    2/10

    Most teachers are nice though

    They've changed the curriculum a bit now so its probably like a 3 or 4

    My school was like 2/10. I hated going, and it had such a poor track record.

    College, on the other hand... 9/10. A lovely place, I learn so much more. Students are actually appreciated, too.

    7 to 7 and a half, it gets for good grades GCSEs and A Levels and there are some very good teachers but there are plenty of problems such as some crap teaching and discipline when I was in the main school and at time and the facilities are only just above average.

    I love my school soo much.

    It is fun, the teachers are great and care abaout us more than exam statistics. There are so many oppourtunities available to us and the subjects are great.

    Above all of that it has taught me to be independant, improved my confidence massivly, and has matured me.

    7 - Nice new building, good results for a state school (last year was 75% A*-C pass rate), some excellent teachers, some really nice people.

    However: Some very poor teachers, and canteen/common room is too small.

    I fail to see how any school with a group of girls wearing skimpy uniforms can be classed as bad.

    Then again, I am a guy, and according to most, we think with our downstairs dept most of the time, so make of that what you will :o:

    Cheerleaders and (American :p: ) football players are such a waste of time. I wish I hadn't even gotten involved with it.. should have hung out with the goth crowd or something more interesting. :rolleyes: Probably less drama involved.

    It was pretty terrible yeah! I think the teachers were all right and I got on with most of them, but but there were too many teachers for the numbers of kids, and there were too many chavs, didn't help that the school itself was pretty ****. So while I'd rate it a 6, the best thing I can save for it is nowhere else really comes as a shock now

    which one, i've been to 3:o:


    the current one as a whole: 4

    science dept: 6

    (it's a science college)

    I think it's the chavvy students that make it crap. I love it personally. just not the kids, which obviously kind of dampens my ''love'' for it as the kids make up for the majority of it. i'd say the school, as a whole, is about 85% chavs and 15% normal, want to succeed people, (not forgetting the teachers which count for that really low 15%:s:)but i guess i like it because i know the teachers are always helpful and there for you. but yeah the chavvy kids make it intolerable sometimes. however most of my classes, now, finally, in a level year are hard working, unlike gcse..gahh bad memories. however that said there still are some numpties left. luckily they're doing things like btecs or non respected a levels..which they deserve tbh
