BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Flawed by bad leadership”
AUTHOR:
The school is good, teachers are a varied but ultimately a good bunch. Being forced to pay for school dinners (even if you don't want them), 4-5% fee increase every year, and a few other oddities remind you that this is a business. In my opinion, the headmaster is the weakest part of what is otherwise a good school.
