Icknield High School Reviews
1 (1 review)
the worst school ever, whenever someone gets bullied they don't help, they just say it'll be sort out, but they never do it, and the child goes through worser and worser situations, The food is terrible, unhealthy food, plain burger buns, and Dried chips. I have never seen any healthy food in this school.
