I totally disagree with the comments made above by pruselips. I attended the open evening a few weeks ago and found Mr Hall to be very inspiring. The pupils also seemed to be very inspired by him. What are the governors thinking of suspending the head only a few days before the preference forms are due in.

Everybody i speak to supports Mr Hall i think he should have a medal with all the outside interference he gets. Yet he still gets the results
its a terrible time for the school and made worse by those concerned not explaining what he has done.
The lettr we received told us nothing maybe its the board that needs changing.

What significance does 13th October hold?
It is inconvenient at any time of the year.

I suspect that the governors had the best interest of the boys, staff and school in general foremost in their minds when they suspended Mr.Hall.
The preference forms were due in - so what?
If he needed suspending for whatever he has done then preference forms would be low down on the list of priorities of the governing body.

Mr Mullin
Headmasters are paid extremely well to tolerate "outside interference" - it is part of his job.
Those concerned cannot explain what he has done. They are bound by proceedure that both the governing body and Mr. Hall have to follow. The letter presumably told you all that you needed to know.

Nobody but the governors and Mr Hall are aware of the full facts, and this is how it should be. People who express an opinion without knowing the full facts are ill-informed and are reacting to speculation only.

Pensby Boys is a horrific school. It would take Pensby decades to catch up calday.
