Best school for simply miles around!
Okay, so I'm biased as I went there as a child and now send my own juniors there. But St Augustines really is a fine example of everything a school should be.
Although it is designated a 'Catholic' school there's little to complain about on the religious front as RE lessons are sensible, humanitarian and practical. The school has a strong moral and ethical code and a zero-tolerance for bullying.
The teachers are on the ball, really care, and know their pupils well. The standard of learning is extremely high.
The colledge is designated both as a specialist IT and Sports college, to add to it's strongly-rooted reputation as a quality all-round educational facility.
The original 1960's building still acts as a main block and entrance building, but over the last twenty years the place has changed incredibly, as the rear of the school now holds brand new didcated buildings for sixth form, PE, and other studies. There are music rooms, laboratories and still it's own playing fields.
Quality education, caring ethos, strong moral guidance. Fabulous.
