HAVING read the article in the Lancing Herald on the principal of the Sir Robert Woodard Academy leaving, I object strongly to Mrs Carole Bailey’s description “quashing the negative image associated with Boundstone Community College”. That is outrageous!
Both my daughters went to Boundstone and I will never be able to thank the teachers enough.
Not only were they enthusiastic, dedicated and passionate for their subjects, they also cared for the young people. Boundstone was a COMMUNITY College and had a very stable teaching staff.
Its performing arts faculty was outstanding and would have graced any school, private or otherwise.
Other departments such as the sciences shone for me too. There was much that was good about Boundstone and a lot of it, sadly, appears to have been lost in the academy.
