It was a Tech school with Labs and Metal/Wood working shops. ;)

proper school then, ;)

when my eldest was choosing a school we went and had a walk round my old senior school.by god what a change.where there were 2 metal and woodwork rooms there was 1 tiny room that covered everything.so me being me(as a carpenter)said to the teacher where are all the tools?he said this is it :o bejesus ive got more sitting in my garage then they had in this room.

mind you also went to another school who had a rather splendid state of the art gym multi million pound complex,so i asked what they were good at?????after approximatly about 5mins of thinking the teachers came back with 'well where quite good at basket ball'. :o :ermm:

as i work in a private school who would just die for this complex but are always in the local paper for there sports results i also said 'what a waste it was to have it when the teachers are no blooming good' well that went down like a lead ballon. :oops:

Our metalshop had it's own blacksmithing section and enough lathes to build a warship.
I got an O level for making a hand beaten copper bowl and a gum machine (including a coin accepter).
O level woodwork for building a drop leaf table and a bowsaw. (My old Dad still has the table next to his bed for books 28 years later).

Very true though generally schools over here anyway there crying out for funding for resources,
Ine would think sourcing the correct staff wouldn't be an issue
