Built originally in 1939, Greenford County School was a grammar school, for boys the London Borough and girls, serving the needs of a rapidly growing population on the western edge of Ealing. Our 1930s Tower at the front of the main building is still a distinctive landmark and makes our school instantly recognisable. It remained a county school until 1974, when Ealing changed to a comprehensive system and the school undertook expansion to cope with greater numbers of pupils
The school is situated in Ruislip Road, Greenford, near the junction with Lady Margaret Road. The school has three blocks of buildings, which house the main subject areas, together with a sports hall, which is fully equipped with sport facilities. In 1992, Greenford High School became a Grant Maintained School and in the following year, the intake increased when it began to admit Year 7 students into the school for the first time.
The school now has over 1440 students on roll, with over 300 in the sixth form. Kate Griffin has been head of Greenford High School since September 1991 after previous posts as deputy head in Durham and head of Mathematics in north Tyneside. She is married and has two sons. She has ultimate responsibility for all aspects of the school and in particular for personnel and staff development.
The reports which is written at the end of the year by the teachers can prove to be very difficult to construct this is because as the teacher will have many classes hence the teacher will have many pupils to teach due to this it would be very difficult to remember the name of every single pupil. In addition when the teacher will be trying to analyse the results of a specific student it could prove to be again difficult to view this is because as the teachers are normally given a handbook in which all the result are stated init.
Furthermore, as the teacher normally manually writes it, it could be written badly leading to poor presentation therefore the teacher will have no clue what is written thus this could lead to the teacher having a poor judgement and evaluation on the student. Another problem is the storage capacity that the book can hold. It can only sustain limited amount of information, due to this the teacher will not be able to note down every piece of information on the student and this could prove vital.
For instance the teacher might not be able to note down the pupils address as well as the telephone number. Moreover, when a student does not hand in homework, teachers normally write on a piece of paper to remind them. But this is not a sufficient method as this paper could be lost and resulting the teacher to forget. In addition, the book that contains the information could be misplaced or lost by the teacher. By this they would loose every piece of information as well as data on the students and this could prove to be a problem as the teacher would be unable to write reports.
