Something doesn't smell right with oils

15th October 2010 at 01:00

I am sure most sensible readers would have read your "Memory oils to splash private pupils in sweet smell of exam success" article with a degree of scepticism (October 8). Suffice to say, our priority is always to invest in teachers, who in turn invest time in their pupils; that's how we support exam performance. Booster clinics, refresher clinics, one-to-one help, revision days and revision guides are all part of the toolkit; aromatherapy oils are not.
