Existing state school gives a broad array of social interactions

As a former pupil of Queens Park Community School in North West London, I am proud to be a product of the diverse benefits of local comprehensive schools. I was at QPCS for seven years, completing both my GCSE’s and A-Levels with the utmost academic support contrary to the misconceptions people may have about the credibility of local schools and those who work in them. I do genuinely believe that without the experience of being educated in such an environment, I would not be equipped with the scope of social and interpersonal skills that I currently exhibit: my friendship group ranged from the ‘weird’ (at least it seemed as thus to someone like myself who came from a humble beginning) and wonderful upper middle classes to the loyal, loving working class.
