We've all been there.

Some have fond memories, some have not so fond memories, but we've all been to school.

Secondary school is the last statutory part of your education and, for some, the most daunting. Exams, SAT's, CAT's, Fischer Family Trust - I mean how much data do these people need to collect on you - at the end of the day, your GCSE's matter (especially if you want to get into 6th form) but the rest - who gives a hoot.

We less able soles, who don't have a PGCE, and work in the bowls of the school, in Admin, have (in the opinion of this writer) more common sense than the teachers. Teachers do have a habit, not all I'll admit, of thinking that they are the be all and end all of the school.

Well I'm sorry to tell them that they are not! Non-teaching tasks revolve around bulings, health and safety, risk assessment, personnel, finance, ICT and the environment - all very important to the life of a school. In this blog, I plan to (attempt) to show what goes on behind the scenes, as well as give you an idea on the day-to-day life of a secondary school.

I hope you enjoy reading.
