What says..

One lad says he’d like more freedom but he’s shouted down: ‘I think most of the rules are really sensible.’ ‘And remember that we make a lot of the rules ourselves through the school council.’ The orderly library buzzes in squeaky hubbub.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers.
