OK - nothing spectacular or modern but sufficient. Limited after school activites, and not much at lunchtime
What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home
country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
Used to be brilliant - but now parents less welcome and more sceptical of the path the school is now taking under Gems
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Think very carefully and look at excellent choice in Truro - many pupils have now left, the brilliant new head was also pushed out, so we feel the school will stumble on for a bit and then most likely close. No 6th form now to speak of, and the early years is still very much in the dark ages.
