Description Gable Hall School is an academy school in Stanford-Le-Hope, Essex. Gable Hall school is a performing arts college which secures students to well working studies within the performing industryAbout the SchoolGable Hall school has many clubs and activities and also runs a school musical once every two years, previous school shows include Wizard Of Oz, We Will Rock You, Our House, Annie & Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The school also has several performing arts evenings for the pupils who have an interest in this matter.The school runs a fast-track system that enters students from the top three colours (sets) into early examinations, such as a language GCSE at the end of year 9, as well as two sciences, a performing art and History/Geography at the end of year 10.CriticismIn 2014, the school came under criticism when it proposed that "split-lunches" would be introduced, in which half of the school would go to lunch while the others are in form and then they would switch over. Critics said that students would be separated from their friends and could possibly be lonely at lunch times if this would go forward, since the system was based on which house a student was assigned to, which is random upon starting at the school. This rule caused for angry parents to sign a petition which received 450 signatures, and the Echo newspaper had it as the headline shortly afterwards.Notable former pupilsDougie Poynter (Member of pop-rock band McFly)Perri Kiely (Member of Dance Group Diversity)Michael Stanley (member of Samoan 2015 World Cup Squad)
