School tells 17-year-old: Stop riding in or we’ll expel you

A school has threatened to expel a 17-year-old if he carries on travelling in by motorcycle. Jack Deeley has twice been sent home from school for arriving on his Aprilia RS125. The Windsor High School and Sixth Form College says students are not allowed to travel by ‘motorised vehicle of any kind’ but Jack says other students park cars outside...

So pupils can be dropped off by mom and dad or bus, but cannot "drive" or "ride" to school, old enough to have kids, but not old enough to make a responsible choice about personal transport?!

These idiots in charge need to stop f***ing with people own time! When did kids walking to school and crossing main roads EVER be considered safe?

the 'head' of this school could have stirred up a hornet's nest by only picking on a biker and leaving the car drivers alone - his parents should go on to some solicitors websites and use the words civil/human rights abuse..then watch the blood sucking f..kers come out to take up the case..surely the school can't touch him outside of school time ?..the petrol station owner who let him/herself be dictated to by a teacher should have told that teacher to get the f..k  off their property and mind their own business

Threats to expel Student

Everyone who has commented, you should email lgaskell (the Heads P.A) and express how you feel......keep it clean and professional, in order to reinforce the point that he is so wrong by applying this discriminatory policy..............Anyone from MAG/BMF/MCN prepared to comment or better still email the school....bombard them with emails and they'll regret they ever implemented the policy....don't let them get away with it.......Demo ride, hell yes.............!!!!!

Unless..

there's some legal, health and safety issue that the school has, with regard pupil's travel to and from school, they're blowing smoke where there's no fire. Last I heard, that's the parent's legal responsibility.

Like many others, suggestion a few choice words in written format, like "Citizens Advice Bureau", and "we'll be contacting our solicitor", should have the school back-peddling with a grovelling apology.

Think a certain head-teacher needs to go a re-read their handbook again: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expulsion_(academia)#Reasons_for_expulsion_from_UK_schools

Also, a bit of light reading for Jack -> http://www.hardwicke.co.uk/articles/expulsions-independent-schools-and-the-law/

My son's going to this school in Sept

I have a concern with this because my son is supposed to be starting at this 6th Form in Sept. He currently commutes to school on his moped. Travelling to / from the new school by public transport (2 buses) is going to drastically extend his day and he's going to be paying twice (buses & bike costs). Whilst I accept that they have the final say on what happens on their property, I'm pretty sure they don't have any right to dictate how anyone gets from A to B if B is a public car park. Time to get some legal advice I think!  Anyone from White - Doulton reading this thread?

Bp garage

One thing missed out on this story is that the student had been given permission to park his bike on the BP forecourt opposite the school by the manager. Mr Sorrell (headteacher) still didn't want the student to park his bike there. My 2 sons go to this school and I am a biker, so I am not very happy about this story. P.S. Wonder if he went to school in a Jaguar XKR8 or 7 series BMW like Sorrell would he be allowed?

He technically can't take the bus - it's motorised transport!


If you're well off, I'd strongly recommend a harrier jump jet. Parking it on the headteacher's car would be even sweeter.

Okay so I'm being silly. If he's planning on doing that then he's going to have to park somewhere else and leave his hat in the scooter. If he doesn't wear protective trousers then wearing a bike jacket isn't going to arouse too much attention as it'll go in a bag.
