With the school buildings budget being cut expect to be deluged with stories about classrooms with leaky roofs over the next couple of years.
I have to say that judging from my own experience at school the importance of shiny new facilities is vastly overrated. Some of the best schools had primitive labs that predated the discovery of electricity and so many mobile units that they resembled a former POW camp or a Butlins. Whereas having modern buildings was no guarantee of actually being any good.
Even John le Carré would have difficulty telling this tale
