My Ideal School.

Extracts from this document...


My Ideal School My ideal school would be situated in the middle of a city so it is near to amenities such as shops, cinemas, theatres and museums. However the school would be so well funded it would buy all the land for five square kilometres around it. With this ground the school would create running tracks, football pitches, cricket grounds and facilities for every sport you could think of. There would also be an enormous park for the pupils and public to enjoy together. In this park would be shaded areas (so people would not get burned in the sunshine) and covered areas (to take cover while it is raining). There would be no fees but a bursary system that would allow children from any background to attend. Each classroom would be fitted with the most modern computers running the most up-to date programmes. ...read more.


The recreational facilities would be brilliant. As a result of the excellent facilities, the school would attract the best coaches and the sports section would be so good many of the pupils would be invited to participate in the Olympics. Exceptionally talented sportsmen and women would be offered a small salary to attempt to keep them in education instead of leaving school to play the sport professionally. The school would not be completely sports orientated. There would be a state of the art library, which would be modelled on the very best university facilities such as Harvard in the USA. There would be a network of computers, DVDs and CD Roms, including virtual reality systems and instantaneous links around the world to allow communications with other similar world-class schools. In the science labs, would be the most modern scientific apparatus in the world. The teachers and students would be co-working with visiting university professors in an attempt to solve the world's power problems by discovering how to make fusion work effectively. ...read more.


As well as sports the school would have many other extra curricular activities. There would be classes for people who want to set up their own businesses. These would teach people how to deal with finances and teach management skills. Classes such as pottery and art would also be available as would dance. The debating society would be supported by top politicians and entertainers who would spend time with the pupils to understand how they feel about issues. The exam system at this school would be of a slightly different format to the current set up. Standard Grade and Higher exams would only be sat when the pupil is ready to sit them to avoid exam stress. Even more importantly, pupils would have much greater choice in the subjects they studied and no subject would be compulsory. At the end of each school year there would be a graduation and leaving party which would celebrate the achievements of those who are leaving. This would provide a memorable send off for those moving on to the next stage of their lives. ...read more.
