The navigation is unclear, the presentation is poor. This sentence, found in the opening paragraph, sets the tone:
"As a Charitable Foundation, Christ's Hospital uses its funds to provide the highest level of financial assistance to its pupils than any other independent boarding school."
Not meaning to be rude, Lousey! considers the lack of grammatical correctness displayed in this sentence highly amusing. Numerous other errors can be found within the site; Lousey! politely suggests using an editor who is not a second form.

sorry brian. they could spend money on making a website that was correct but the school would rather spend its money on gravel. while i was at CH they spent somewhere between 150-200,000 pounds (or so i was told by a member of staff) gravelling the quad, front ave, back ash, even the mile. two years later they literally vacuumed it up again. they squandered money on stuff like that, and now the pupils have to buy many of the books themselves, and even have to provide their own paper. this may sound like some school in sub-saharan africa but this is CH in the 21st century.brian walling wrote:Yes, the school Web site is useful, but it damages its credibility with the poor standard of its English. There is even a glaring grammatical error in the first paragraph of the home page! If I was a parent, considering the school for my children, this would worry me. Doesn't anybody at the school write good English any more? Why don't they check the Web site?
sorry bit of a rant, but this is not the CH ethos i knew
WHAT? The land of the FREE?!
Whoever told you that is your ENEMY...

anyway me being me ive been on quite a few other school websites, and i think it needs to be way more current, i mean why not put more detailed events on there, the more hits there are by parents old blues and maybe even students etc, so the more pressure there would be for it to be good.
also pics of events would be nice, and copies of letters sent out if they are relevant to the wider community
