My family can't quite match IS Townsend's record of five Office for Standards in Education inspections (letters, April 4). We have only three to our credit so far. However, I have been "OFSTOOD" twice within two years, in each case by the same registered inspector, the two schools being 100 miles apart. Can anyone beat that?
