Pupils spend from 9am to 3.15pm in the room in complete silence, doing schoolwork at desks facing the walls with just 20 minutes for lunch. For calls of nature, they need to see the pastoral carer and be accompanied to the toilet. It made me feel awful just being in there and I know there are a lot of other pupils who feel the same.
