Secondary school not second rate school.

June is upon us and just around the corner are the school summer holidays (also known as 100% increase in holiday prices holiday).Before you know it September will be here and the children will be back to school.
If your child is starting secondary school I hope you got allocated the school of your choice rather than the school that East Sussex Cunty Council wants to herd your child into.I have heard several stories about the councils admissions team being generally crap and operating a strict policy of every child in Crowborough goes to the Beacon whether you like it or not.If parents had the cheek to want a decent school for their children (not Beacon)the Council seems to go into full on punishment mode and allocate a place at Beacon anyway .If you appeal they then relent and allocate your child to a different school miles away ( i have heard mentioned that someone got "threatened with" an allocated space at a school in St Leonards!!!! some 40 miles away if they didnt accept the place at Beacon).

Those parents that dont give a shit and are happy for their children to go to the crappy local comprehensive will be happy but my sympathies go to those parents who wanted better for their child than Beacon but were forced there by the twats at the local authority.

So if your child has been allocated a place at Beacon I would recommend that you go and see your doctor now and get a stock of anti depressants in before you need them.

Obviously check to make sure your child has the right uniform (scruffy t shirt)and equipment before they attend their first day at Beacon.Luckily the school doesnt expect you to provide certain things that are essential equipment at the Beacon .These things include cigarettes and lighters which will have to be acquired by your child on the first day.The school is very generous however and will provide free razor blades to enable your child to slash their body to bits as well as encouraging the girls to have contraceptive implants fitted from age 13 so they can have underage sex.Parents dont have to worry though as you wont be aware of these things because the school wont actually tell you or ask you.Ignorance is bliss.

Good luck folks-you will need it.
