They knocked my school down years ago; it’s still a desolate wasteland. Probably some decent wildlife in the wild grasses which have overgrown it.


#9

what’s the diff between a state school and a comprehensive?


#10

Probably comprehensive but I’m assuming


#11

My sceondary school was an all boys comp. It’s apparently now an academy. Tim Peake is an old student apparently


#12

Yeah I had a look online and mine’s an academy now too. What does that mean?!


#13

Well, to my pretty sketchy knowledge…I thought state schools existed in the catchment areas of grammar schools…whereas comprehensives were found in non-grammar areas? Put me straight if I’m wrong…in fact I’m sure it is because kids I knew had a choice between state schools and comps. Pretty sure there IS a difference though.


#14

They can have more flexibility over the syllabus. Can pick and choose the subjects they offer according to my TV. Also directly funded by government


#15

Funded by governers as opposed to the council I think
