Isn't it an Academy, so do they have to pay their own bills, not the taxpayer ?

They only have a finite budget which, in the end, all comes out of our pockets.

Having said that, the more they spend on 'leccy, the less they have to spend on teaching.

The School/Academy they built opposite me a few years ago does this, the building lights are on pretty much 24/7, and the 'outside' lights auto-come on at 6am-10pm, every day, even at weekends... (why? no school at weekends)

the lights are so tall that the light goes straight into/through my window, when i'm sat on my settee they can get blinding... have reported a few times, nothing gets done..

Been a nightmare since the day they started building...

If they pay for the blinds.. .sure...

But it's not just about the light, the main gate/entrance is DIRECTLY opposite my front window, every time anyone enters or leaves the school the steel gate slams and makes a right noise, any vehicles coming in/out of the place, such low engine rumbles, headlights straight into my window..

Kick-out time, cars parked all over (double yellows) and idling all over the place, such a racket I can't use the front room at all during the day/these times because of the noise..

That's not even counting the pre-7am deliveries (there are laws against such) and the noise the kids make....

Not sure if the fact that it is an academy means that taxpayers won't be footing bill for energy use - aren't these sometimes fixed contracts with developers?

The money for all these schools or academies as they seem to be getting called now originates from taxation. The major difference seems to be that the local authority has less say in how it is spent and in general that has to be good.
