If you were going to survey the parents in your school to ask them what they thought of it and you didn't want to exceed 30 questions and wanted to rank them Excellent, Good, Average, Poor, Unsatisfactory (so five choices), what 10 questions would you ask? Eg:

- Facilities
- Location
- Curriculum
- Pastoral care
- Communication with parents

How much classroom disruption goes on? Pretty much top of my list.

Classroom disruption - tricky - DD is always regaling me with tales of the stupidity that goes on in her classes - and I've seen the FB videos and pictures.
Problem is that these are top sets in a tres tres MC comp - 100% RG students
and a right bunch of PITA teenagers they are too !!!!

Interesting point TalkinPeace2. I guess it's something that can very in level and vary in its effect on students. Your guys are obviously still learning despite the distractions whereas as others might not be. Sounds like your lot are savvy enough to know exactly how much work they need to do and exactly what they can get away with. In another scenario, will very disruptive students be removed from class or will they be left to disrupt a whole lesson? This is going to depend on the school.
