Outrage was caused this week by the revelation that Hampstead School had been hit by another year of poor building results.
The results, that come with the end of the Summer Term, showed that only 63% of the 5 buildings required had been completed, and of that only 15% had achieved Grade-A standard.
In response, the Head stated that: “This year’s results can’t be compared to any other year, that’s for certain.” However, critics have pointed to a consistent lack of school building on the site over the past five years, calling it a “trend”.
“Look, it’s been a bad year for buildings all across the country,” said one insider source. “When school building is going into negative figures in Edinburgh, you can’t blame us for our results being slightly lacking.”
