The Astley Cooper School Reviews
1.5 (2 reviews)
The School is alright, only bad thing Id say is how the school doesn't prepare you for "adult life" like it says it does. However, it sets you up for a low pay trade job. Which is all people want in some cases but if you are wanting good results, then I recommend not sending your kids here.
The school is atrocious and it is very dirt the teacher are extremely rude towards the children and the school has no stability towards behaviour
