Sadly the school is not known for its caring ethos towards apostrophes. sad

Can I be a real pedant and say that this isn't a spelling mistake, it's a punctuation mistake? << runs >>

Or possibly a grammar mistake?

Punctuation, definitely - because the mistake is caused by the misplacing of the apostrophe.
