  • "This school has been like this for years. I moved my daughter away from this school in her last year and she had to catch up the 2+ years she was behind before moving on to senior school ( she is now 18). My ex wife insisted that she went to this school even though it had such a bad Ofsted report back in 2000. The old head master is now in charge of Kendall so I would not send a child there either."
