Nick Wood at the School
I have spent three months volunteering at Westminster Comprehensive School.
The school itself is impressive. It's a good functional building, has a well-stocked library, computers on hand, and the class sizes are around 30 pupils in each. The teaching staff is a lot younger than I expected - but this gives the place an energetic, can-do feel to it.
I taught English and Social Studies in J.H.S. I would go through the text books/syllabus and the subject teacher and I would decide which topics I should take - for example, as an International Relations student at university, I loved the opportunity to be able to take lessons on the UN and the British Commonwealth in Social Studies classes.
