Fiona Phillips left Millbrook school in about 1977, the Echo fails to point this out.

Funny, it was £13.6 million when it was being built ....

Southy are you speaking for whole demographic of those whose children will attend this school. It's negativity from people such as yourself that leads and breads the same negativity in others. This school is a must for this and future generations, if its anything like Oasis Weston they have achieved great things in the past two years.have a look round and see what is on offer before making such stupid bloody comments.

In my defence I didn't benefit from a £16m state of the art education, just one of Mrs Thatchers Incomprehensible Schools a long time ago.
