Benefit of the school layout
I (and my kids) have become friends with so many people from all walks of life and it’s lovely. It’s a real egalitarian hub. (Plus there’s all the wonderful sporting facilities, outdoor learning and forest school, specialist art and PE lessons, camping trips on the school field, fab PTA organised events etc).
The building is not traditionally pretty but actually inside you see the benefit of the layout with the huge windows making it so light and airy, and the doors on each classroom leading outside so lessons can move outside whenever necessary.
