Why Glentrool school matters;Small schools
It is hard to find any parents in Glentrool who believe their children would benefit from a larger school. Mr Crang says: "Mixing with children of all ages is an advantage. My youngest who's almost six has learned a lot from being in a class with older kids. I used to work with children and the ones I saw in big classes weren't getting what mine were at Glentrool."
Jack Trainer, whose son has been at Glentrool since he started school, says: "Now he's one of the oldest, I think he helps the younger ones. I don't think he'll find the move to a bigger school difficult. The children at all the primary schools in the area mix on a regular basis. The ones who'll be starting secondary at the same time get to know each other."
