There's a website called rate my teacher. It's quite funny it's like a trip advisor about teachers, completed by pupils.
It makes an interesting read especially if you are still unsure of which school to choose.
For example the head at Adams comes across very badly (apparently likes to suspend children)
The head at Thomas Telford is only interested in you if you are a good footballer
As I say its been completed by a minority of students so take it with a pinch of salt but thought it would be fun for some people to look at rather than keep refreshing the bham website http://uk.ratemyteachers.com/thomas-telford-school/22391-s
