The school here is really nice. Even though we have to work hard the teachers are really nice to students and I have met loads of new people. My favourite subject is Technical Graphics.

I have settled in well here because the staff and other students really look out for First Years and help us along. I like Science and I am really glad that I chose this school.

I really like the school because you are not always in the same class group and you get to meet lots of new people. I like the practical subjects like Woodwork, Metalwork and TG.

I like the school because I really like my subjects. You get a really good choice of subjects here. I found it easy to settle in because my older brother came here too and he had told me lots of good things about the school.
