    Can't comment on that story, but PFI was the way our local schools were turned from lower - middle - upper to primary - secondary. Maintenance & caretaking also done via PFI, and the letting fees are set so high that few outside organisations ever book schools for their meetings (guides, etc). So schools, instead of being used all day every day, remain empty outside of school hours. Even HT aren't allowed keys, and any visits by staff in the holidays have to be negotiated and booked ahead.

    I thought it was going to be a thread about schools where the SLT were zombies and the apocalypse was about to happen.

    It does seem to be a shocking waste of money that these facilities are unused. I'm surprised nobody want to set up a free school...
