Jumping Johns Nursery

High St, Glastonbury BA6 9DS, UK – 01458 837832

Brilliant nursery. Highly recomended. My daughter has gone on to the school from Jumping Johns and my son is currently attending. They both have been so very happy here. The staff are very knowledgeable and highly professional. My son is autistic and the nursery have been incredibly supportive of his needs. In fact they are very supportive of every child and their individual needs. They have extended hours of access for the holidays now with a holiday club for the longer holidays. The holiday club is going due to how many people need the service outside term time, so if you are working discuss this with them. Staff are incredibly approachable and trustworthy. They are more than happy to discuss any concerns of any kind you may have. My children have grown so much since attending. Socially, emotionally, and academically. There is always lots to do and explore and they always feel they have had fun and feel happy.

Both my girls attended Jumping Johns and they both loved it! I can't think of a better place that would have prepare them for their transistion to infants school because they were already there and settled in...

Brookside Academy

Brooks Rd, Street BA16 0PR, UK – 01458 443340

Like most primary schools, Brookside was run like a totalitarian state. Children were controlled using fear tactics, and a system of intimidation and indoctrination was perfected at every level of the hierarchy. Every Friday we were lined up, and forced to sit crossed legged in the hall. It was here where we were played christian hymns and forced to sing along; despite the religious nature of these songs, we soon came to realise that there was one far more powerful than any christian god: Claire Axton our headteacher. As we were marched into the hall she often played the main theme from The Deer Hunter. The sardonic choice of song was never missed by me or my peers: going to Brookside certainly felt like Vietnam The one sanctum of this hellish place was the playground. The humps, green grassy hills located at the back of the playground; near the willow tree, were maybe the best part. The school management sensed a excess of happiness, and took steps to purge it. Our grassy haven were replaced with flat repressive tarmac. Its black oily colour a reflection of our psyches. The school was divided into four houses. Each pupil was placed within one of these houses arbitrarily. This created unnecessary factionalism. The idea in the minds of our controllers was no doubt the concept of divide and rule. In conclusion I give this establishment four stars in the hope that my home will not be bugged, and I will not be silenced. 2008 Leaver
