my former secondary (faith) school is the only good school apart from the local private school which is horrendously expensive for the average private school
there’s a chronic shitness in non-faith/private schools in the solent, hence why isle of wight is the worst in the country for achievement. you either go to your local private school or you become a farmer or a town drunkard.
out of interest, did you go to a CoE school?
i am aware that CoE is average or just below the national average, while Islamic schools are basically terrorist schools with 2 Es at the end and an A in GCSE Urdu
but catholic and jewish schools do extremely well, the latter being close to the private school average.
