After taking my daughter round Colchester last week I must confess to be a bit disappointed. The facilities seemed to be really lacking and everything seemed a bit run down especially when you compare it to Chelmsford. How did everyone esle find it?
I also wondered if anyone new about what work they are doing to enable an extra intake for next year? I'm hoping that they are going to improve the design and technology area as my dd loves this and there was only one small room and we were told that it woudn't be like that anymore but without being told what was happening. Also does anyone how has a dd there tell me how they find the PE facilities?
Also does anyone know if theres any problem with bullying and if so how it is dealt with as I worry that being in the same tutor group for all your lessons can make it pretty miserable if there is bullying (speaking from experience at a girls grammar school which kept to tutor groups).
Finally does anyone know if extra curricular clubs are only during lunchtime or are some after school as was told 2 completely different things!!
Sorry to sound so negative but found myself coming away with more answers rather than less!!
Hope others had a more positive experience
