Criticisms.[edit]

I removed the criticisms section as it was a purely subjective view. If verifiable evidence can be produced to back up this view, then that's different. The grammar and spelling of the section was not of the required standard either, although that's easily fixed.--Symon 09:27, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Criticisms section removed again. No evidence backs up this subjective view. Indeed, the boys' school out-performs the girls' at A/AS level as anyone who can use a search engine can see! Check out this BBC link. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/hi/education/05/school_tables/secondary_schools/html/879_alevel_lea.stm --Symon 21:37, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

Recent Vandalism.[edit]

Please, you've had your fun. Give it a rest whoever you are 82.46.53.13!--Symon 23:00, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

I agreem I've had to edit it at least 3 times, its not funny TimMorris 17:17, 1 February 2006 (UTC)
Ok, I had to fix another round of vandalism. Yawn! Tim, I'll find out about wikipedia policy on vandalism. Cheers --Symon 10:57, 2 February 2006 (UTC)
I've added a user page for our visitor. User:82.46.53.13--Symon 13:08, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Bias?[edit]

I was approached, or rather shouted at by a certain person who was not named claiming that this article was biased. If indeed he finds it biased, the majority of the articled was lifted from the school website DHSB.org. I also must add that if he finds a problem with any wikipedia article that he should go ahead and change it to how it suites him. That is the beauty of a Wiki-Wiki...

TimMorris 20:54, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Just passing through, but to be honest I imagine the school is biased (82.69.60.98 00:49, 12 December 2006 (UTC))

There have been a few thing in the article taken off the school website which are clearly non-factual opinions/viewpoints and thus shouldn't be lifted from the website and straight onto here without editing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.8.247.108 (talk) 15:25, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Houses[edit]

The user below remembers the form names, NOT the houses which have been in place for 98 years but have now been merged with the houses and given the same, new names. I attended 1994-2001, houses at that time, houses were North, South, East, West, Pole, Central. i don't recall any of those mentioned on the main page. - Masterplan79th —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.192.137.30 (talk) 04:38, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Those were the forms not the houses. The forms were North, South, East, West, Peripheral, Central. IIRC — Briancollins (talk) 06:49, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

The houses were Raleigh, Drake, Grenville and Gilbert I think... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.151.148.113 (talk) 22:40, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Categories for discussion: nomination of various 'Former pupils' categories[edit]

The 'former pupils' category associated with this school has nominated for renaming, along with all similar categories. Comments are invited at the categories' entry on the Categories for discussion page. Thank you. Occuli (talk) 15:22, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
