Some of you (in the UK) may have heard in the news that one of the private schools in Aberdeen has been closed by the school inspectors. Two of the staff, including the owner/manager, have been arrested for whatever reasons.

The report makes for interesting reading: http://www.educationscotland.gov.uk/Images/HamiltonSchool210214_tcm4-826885.pdf[^]

A lot of the items in the report sound a lot like when my two kids went their for their nursery years (from 6months to reception year). I moved them to the school I went to for Primary 1 onwards.

My eldest is now 9, so that is probably at least 8 years of grumblings by parents for things to actually have happened.

A pretty clear case of management failure if you ask me. Interesting to see what happens next. The council have had to re-open a school that they closed to school the children for the time being.
