SIR, - As members of Francis Bacon Maths and Computing College sixth form, we would like to express our disappointment at your article concerning the "inadequate" state of the school (Herts Advertiser, July 10).

Having been pupils at the school for six years now, we feel we are in a good position to contradict your negative suggestions. We both have achieved well at the school and believe - no matter what Ofsted comments about areas of the school - there are many strong, commendable aspects.

We feel you have portrayed our school in a negative light based solely on parts of the Ofsted report.

The paper is read by many members of the public, including former and prospective students. This kind of publicity is detrimental to the reputation of the school.

n Editor's note: Our report was factual and based on the findings of the Ofsted inspectors and more than half of it consisted of the balancing views of head Ms Jacqui Verrall. Our editorial comment was also supportive of the head.
