Jolly Jack’s Castle is a story about education in the Independent sector and was written after I had departed a certain school, still smarting from the crap I’d had to deal with there. I hope things are different today but I fear that some of the situations I found may still hold true in both independent and state schools nationwide.
To tell you where the school I taught actually is would be slightly risky, not to say dangerous given the litigation that might follow. Let me just say it’s quite well known and appears to be a prestigious and very ancient monument to learning. It has changed since I left the place but I do wonder how much. To say more would only compromise the innocent, the kids!
