A school of 8-12 year olds from Bedfordshire have decided to teach themselves. They have sacked their teachers and discharged the headmaster. The school is now run by Adam Picket, 10.
Adam told us: "We prefer to be in charge. Bullying has stopped altogether, our grades have sky rocketed, and the only adults we have kept on are our dinner ladies, who are currently cooking from our new healthier menu of takeaways".
When asked why they children decided this Adam replied: "Well adults never listen. They expect us too but they don't. The only thing we miss is not being able to take the piss out of them".
We chose to ignore Adam's request and asked instead how a 10 year old could possibly have the full experience to run a school and teach fellow children. Frustrated, Adam said: "Oh for goodness sake. See this is the problem with adults. You question everything. I have 10 years experience of being a child. You're what, about 50 you were last as school 34 years ago. You were last a child 40 years ago".
I felt the need to inform Adam that I was not 50 but 42. The cheeky sod. We then decided to talk to a pupil about how they felt being taught by fellow ex classmates.
Jenny told us: "It is sooooooo cool. Normally I would have pulled a sicky, but school is so much fun now! I got an A++++++++ for my English homework. I even had a purple star coloured in by my teacher's very own hand!"
When asked their parents feelings on the situation, Jenny informed us: "They don't care. As long as they get their 6 hours peace a day they are fine. None of the parents have even tried to get the teachers back."
We left shortly after as we felt intimidated.
