Having met a fair few dragons since leaving the school, I can safely say that Mr Grant is still the scariest person I have ever met. Having said that, without his firm manner, loyalty to his pupils and his endless struggle to keep the school competitive with the likes of much larger public schools, the place would not have the reputation or wealth that it has today. In short, by experiencing Andrew Grant's ruthless style, the boys of St Albans will be much better prepared for real life.
Clear sense of purpose and vision for this school. Probably seen as reactionary by many, they miss the point that this is a school steeped in tradition and solid values. Not for you? Go elsewhee.
the below written on the 2/24/07 is spot on. a real tragedy this man is a headmaster.
