  • St Raymond Nonnatus Analysis

    The Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus Almost every Sunday during my youth was spent at church with the family. On many occasions, we were simply up the road at the local Catholic Church but the most memorable moments that I can recall are the ones spent with family at the Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus.

I can never forget the smell of the incense burned by the deacons and priest prior to the ceremony.

  • Analysis: The Bucksbaum Early Entrance Academy

    The Bucksbaum Early Entrance Academy is a program that accelerates high school students past their junior or senior year directly to college. What this really means is that the members of this culture are a bunch of children who really wanted to get out of high school. We all were a part of the gifted programs in our schools, and we all decided we were too smart for that.

    To reach a conclusion I will assess the most recent Ofsted report (2014), the Behaviour Policy (2015) and my own reflections on my experience of Academy A.
