Having exalted the merits AGGS I do have some minor niggles.
Parents evening last yr was a shambles!
teachers at different parts of the building , I am not well and going up and down stairs did not do my health much good.
We did not even get to have an appt with the Maths and English teachers, they had some sort of lottery? to see who would see them. I did manage to see the English teacher as no one was waiting at his/her desk,so I took my chance sat down and announced who I was with my daughter sitting next to me.She/he looked at me and my daughter blankly, obviously she/he had no idea who she was! she/he took note of the name looked down at her test results and said some thing like "oh ******** is one my best girls" how could she/he say this since given that 5mins before he/she had no idea who she was!!
I do not like reports given as levels , I have no problem with stating Levels per-se but why can we not have a % mark and a mean % ( and even a mode and range of results)with respect to her yr?
one more thing ,my daughter comes home one day announcing there is trip to India at a cost of approx £2000+ and would like to go
are they having a laugh , I know some very affluent children attend AGGS but it is a state school although we could of afforded this I am sure many parents would not of been able too(in the end my daughter did not want to go since no one in her friendship group were going)
as I said minor niggles but small things bother me.
