This school is horrible, the bullying is unbelievable, the education is ridiculously unbelievable, most of the class is teachers telling the students life stories and relating it to stuff that doesn't actually relate, horrible, glad to be out.

The science dept also needs attention - there is crossover here, so similar issues ...  Read more

Both of my grandchildren attend St. Mels and I would highly recommend this school.
