What does a School mean to you?

Posted on

A few weeks ago, after an assembly I got all the staff and students in the school to write Ridgeway College treedown four words that they felt described the ethos of our school. They did so anonymously and I compiled a list of all the words, ranking them for the amount of times that they re-occurred. Of course some of the students couldn’t resist. “Money grabbing” came up, as did oddly “have a nice day” but luckily those jokers where few and far between. The top word from the staff was “individuality” whilst the top word from the students was “respect”. Using a web-based program called tagxedo.com you can wrap the words around a shape and change their size to correlate to the number of times the students wrote the word down. Here are the results.
