App-solutely Terrible

With the new half term, students will have seen new posters emblazoned on school walls, regarding the Hampstead School Code of Conduct. Now, however snazzy these posters are, we thought it a bit odd that, perhaps to attract younger minds, the Code of Conduct had been placed on an image of a phone. It seems ironic that the key rules of the school are shown on one of the many things that are banned from the school premises.

The phone does show how spectacularly backwards the SLT's views are. It doesn't take an A* ability in close-word-analysis that 'Uniform' takes pride of place at the top of the image, and Home Learning (or Homework for those adverse to new 'initiatives') is left to fester on the second left line.

Other hilarities include the 'Responsibility' sign, the UNICEF logo, in the centre, like the Management have ever had good conduct in that area of 'responsibility'. And, finally, at the bottom right-hand corner, we have, under 'environment', a badly photoshopped Hampstead Trash.

To view the poster, see below:

DISCLAIMER: This Hampstead Trash article has been written to critique the actions of the governing bodies of the school. This is so student readers can hear both sides of the argument, and formulate their own opinions on matters pertaining to their education.
