Lampton Sixth Formers Should Be Allowed To Leave School At Break

The new gate has meant that lampton sixth formers are no longer allowed to leave school at break. Although security is increasingly important because of terrorism and we appreciate the effort made by the school to protect us, our autonomy and independence has been taken away. Break time allows students to clear their heads and prepare themselves for the next lesson and for some people, sitting on sofas (which we are not allowed to eat on which is a separate annoyance) indoors for 20 minutes is not enough. There is also now limited differentiation between sixth formers and the lower school - this differentiation was something that was promised to us when we joined the sixth form. Being off site has limited impact on punctuality. Any student will tell you that it is just as possible to be late without going to convenience. Although we have been promised a better variety of snacks in the canteen and pavilion, these snacks are overpriced with drinks like drench being sold for a pound when the same drinks can be bought cheaper elsewhere. There is also nothing fizzy or chocolatey and though you may claim that this decision has been made in the interest of our health, it is a bit unfair that we are not allowed to take responsibility over our diets ourselves. It is ridiculously expensive to eat in the canteen and also boring. £2.20 for a panini? Extortion. Please consider changing your minds because it is really awful, especially if you’re a smoker. Let’s just go back to how it was please
