Places like that are few and far between. It's sad to see even one go away especially because of an accident. Glad no one was hurt.

Sorry to hear of the school closing ash. Isn't the government supposed to help out schools?

Erm.. Help out in what way? If you're an English state school, the government will help you out by cutting your funding and forcing your teachers to work longer contact hours with more stress, more demands and more restrictions on their teaching. If you're an English independent school, the government will help you out by giving you no funding whatsoever and forcing you to submit to a corrupt and agenda-led inspection system (which you still have to pay for :lol: ). So no. Not really.

England has the most retarded education system in Europe. E double minus.

I'm sorry ash. I'm in the US so don't know anything about England's school funding. Guess I just got a lesson on that.

Totally agree Ash, and Wales. N. Ireland and Scotland are slightly better but not by much. The religious thing seems to muzzle some of the better schools, teachers and local curriculum.

I've always worked outside the schools system but taught at both ends of the funding spectrum. At one end in mental health and learning difficulties, where I saw project after community project shut down because of NHS cuts. At the other end lecturing at Cambridge where no expense is spared.

Glad I went to school in N. Ireland. Like a few others I started primary school at 3, did my 11+ at 9, newer attended a single class in secondary school but studied independently, went to university at 13.

Those where the days.

WOW, WOW, WOW, NoobDriver.
You have a wife that not only does not annoy you because of Asphalt 8, does not threat divorce, but instead makes a cake celebrating Asphalt 8 at your b-day!!!???
WOW, WOW, WOW.
I have an almost perfect wife. Her only problem is that she hates that I play Asphalt 8.

Double Congratulations to you.
 May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.
