I have two children; two of my children go to grammar schools. As soon as I can I am sending my other child to Beths. How can you learn in a school where the kids are allowed phones, blackberries play games on the computer and the staff won't do anyting about as they did not agree it .Keep up the good work Mr Skinner, no phones, no blackberries only to make that one call a day. Yours is the only school where it is strict but fair and theylearn. Keep up the good work.

AGREE 100% WITH MR SKINNER, FOR A SCHOOL TO BE SUCCESSFUL AND GET GREAT RESULTS, THE HEAD NEEDS TO BE DISTANT FROM THE PUPILS SO THAT THEY CANNOT FATHOM HIM OUT - NEEDS TO MAINTAIN DISCIPLINE, N RULES - IF YOU DO NOT HAVE DISCIPLINE IN THE CLASSROOM HOW CAN YOU TEACH AND MAINTAIN STANDARDS. CONTINUE THE WAY YOU ARE MR SKINNER - YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB - DO NOT GIVE UP AND DO NOT ALLOW MOBILE PHONES IN THE CLASS ROOM - WHATEVER YOU DO. IT WL RUIN THE SCHOOL - A BOYS' SCHOOL HAS TO BE STRICT

In terms of statistics and school quality this is the man for the job. But often his rules are over the top and smothering. Some of the regulations he imposes should be relaxed a bit. Also could smile more often.

Very unpopular with both students and teachers. Pushing out the quality loyal teachers and replacing them with his bureaucratic brigade. I would agree with the other reviewers who say that he worries far too much about silly details, instead of trying to treat the students like adults and listening to teachers, students and parents.

don't think he deserves what the others say he's not a good laugh but he is the head teacher and he's good at that

He's overly strict, and scary, but OK, if you get on his rather small 'Good' side! lol. I do think he's in it for the money though. Just look at his car!
