    I'd get rid of some of the council estate crowd because they spend much of their time disrupting lessons, abusing teachers and students, claiming they'll 'get their dad on you', or challenging you to a fight and then walking away.

    I think the town could do with a second school to be honest. Not that big in size and holding 1000 pupils makes it very crowded.

    Also, it'd be good if some subjects had permanent teachers. I've just received No 8 for Modern Studies this year. Plus if they want to champion healthy eating then they shouldn't be charging more for fruit over slices of cake.

    But there are sets in school?
    And what about the students who get put into a bottom set in year 7, but the change of secondary school do them good? Why shouldn't they get the best teachers? They're the one's that need to improve the most..
    There is minimal setting in my school. My last school had a lot more, and there was a lot of movement between sets.

    The system at the moment means that people at the top end are ignored and aren't pushed at all. It's all geared towards the other end. I'm really fed up of doing YEAR THIRTEEN lessons where we spend an hour going over things like "when you write an essay, do an introduction and conclusion".

    Yeah I sound etlitist and stuck-up, but I'm really tired of it.

    Giving pupils who need more help better teachers sounds like a good idea in theory. However, it only works when if we are assuming all the teachers are of an acceptable standard, and all kids in the bottom sets are there because they're really hard working and want to learn but can't help being slower.
