Have your say

The half-term reports are in as Pompey cross the middle point of the season. So who’s at the top of class and whose card reads ‘must do better’...

Adam Webster

Teacher’s pet. Slow start but has found himself towards the head of class as term has gone on. B +

Christian Burgess

Had a perfect attendance record until earlier this month. That annoying kid who makes it all look so easy. A

No January expulsion with the head teacher saying he’s staying for the full term. Needs to eradicate moments of outrageous behaviour, however C

Class prodigy. Loved by teachers and pupils alike. Exceptional talent envied by rival schools. A

Enda Stevens

Fine attendance record. Never any hassle and increasingly coming to attention. B+

Sick note. Didn’t impress the head teacher early on but looked set to overtake his classmate until an extended absence. C-

Matt Clarke

A merit badge for his work early in term. B
