It is a school that is pushing a woke agenda on children and has no room for any debate on there political view

The silent sad mime

I did science and nearly burnt the school down. I also learnt how to play the guitar and went back to 1985 to the Nayland dance and recreated Johnny b goode.

Nayland review

Nayland college has good classes. I loved cooking, woodwork, carving leadership and other classes. Most of the teachers are very friendly and nice. I'm currently in my 3rd year at nayland college. I'm not very excited for exams but I think that everything else will be ok. To anyone in year 9 you don't need all the math books they make you get, I got 3 math books in year 9, I'm currently going in to year 11 and will be using the third one this year. You will be using the laptops more in year 10 than year 9

Not bad, certainly not great.

Teachers were okay, sometimes.
Some are mean and will waste your time sending you to their higher-ups without even taking the time to just talk to you about things, which I found sort of childish?
They need to start treating senior students (mainly year 12/13s) with more respect and freedom, I found that as a 17/18 year old with some degree of maturity and independence that I was still treated like a child and or criminal :)
Not sure if that’s just a general high school thing or not but it still sucked, I was miserable in high school however some teachers actively made it worse while others were understanding and helpful. A real mixed bag of emotions and respect. I don’t ask for much, I simply want to learn the content and pass my tests and forcing students to sit through assembly’s and school events made my experience 10x worse because none of them were of any relevance to me and all it did was drive me away from the school and being involved with events, essentially forcing me to become even less willing to partake in school activities due to the lack of choice in participation. No offence but nobody wants to sit in the hall and listen to a bunch of suck-ups talk about “SOAR” for an hour. PS: I know that if any of the teachers were to read this they would probably chalk it up to some kid with an attitude problem or just deflect the blame to somewhere else, like usual.
