Dear Euro-School (Greece),
WE, at Euro-Schools Head Office (Brussels), are writing to inform you that we are still gravely concerned about your School’s recent performance.
As you know, we have had to call in the Euro Inspectors on several occasions to assess your claims that you have been doing everything possible to improve the dire results since the previous inspections.
This situation has been severely aggravated by the attitude and behaviour not only of your staff but also students.
It has been brought to our attention that staff initially refused to sign contracts agreeing to good behaviour in the future while students have rioted, led violent demonstrations and set fire to school property.
Now, it is true that there are some other Euro-Schools that are also experiencing difficulties in achieving the goals set by us.
However, they are, on the whole, making genuine attempts at self-improvement since under new senior management despite attempts by some students to undermine them.
Other Euro-Schools, particularly those in the Northern sector, have even urged us to expel you in order to make an example of a School so that Euro-Schools (Southern sector) will find it easier to get their students to comply with our overarching rules and regulations and thereby minimise the ‘contagion’ spreading further.
As an elite group of Schools, we uphold the highest standards of behaviour and performance.
It is, therefore, our considered view that Euro-School (Greece) has failed to comply fully with the terms and conditions set out by us regarding performance despite warnings over the past two years.
However, whilst pro tem we will not expel you, we nonetheless have no option but to place your School in Special Measures forthwith. This entails Euro Inspectors having on-site offices, overseeing the implementation of the promised reforms and reporting back to Head Office the least infraction for immediate review of the provisional expulsion order.
However, if at any time during the period in Special Measures you are no longer able to address your shortcomings, feel you have had enough and wish to withdraw Euro-School (Greece) from the Group, we will fully understand.
Please be aware, though, that under no circumstances would we be able to assist you with the inevitable consequences.
Euro-Schools Head Office (Brussels)
