For me, A S Niell's Summerhill school concept always seemed rather
strange - schoolchildren have complete freedom to what they want rather
than what they should, even to absent themselves from any class if they
wish. They also have equal voting rights in all matters of school
This film was produced for the BBC's children's channel CBBC and is a
pure delight. The lines between Good - everyone associated with the
school and Bad - the Ofsted inspectors, and by association, the
Government, are drawn very clearly, to the point of caricature. The
children are charming and fun loving, the teachers are warm and caring.
The inspectors are rigid, disciplined and humourless. There is also a
clear political agenda behind their actions.
The inspectors condemn the school, but the school appeals and goes to
law. Their counsel turns out to be the renowned human rights barrister
Geoffrey Robertson. Even the judge is humane and generously gives over
his courtroom for a meeting of the school council.
The only part of this film which - for me - was weak was the medieval
visualisation by one child of the court procedure. But then, I'm not a
twelve year old child, I'm not in the audience the film is directed to.
I hope it gets a wider showing and a DVD release.
