    Can I go back to E please as I feel really irritated?
    Reception changed to Early Years. Soooooooo annoying.
    Reception's bad enough but what the **** is Early Years supposed to mean?

     
  12. you'll like this true story, ShowerGel: I went to a comprehensive and my tutor group was based on birthdays. MIne is in July so all my tutor group had July/August birthdays, like me. I would say that about half of them ended up not doing any exams. The class that they ended up in was called 'O': 'o' for opportunity. They left school without any o or cse exams. Ironic?

    That's appalling mfl.
    How did that come to happen though?
    Fancy calling it 'opportunity'. It just goes to show what an utter sham it can be for a lot of the time.
     
  14. That's the comprehensive education system for you?
    *oops! Wrong thread!*
