A C of E school has been told to drop the word "saint" from its name in case it offends other religious groups.
The practice of calling schools after saints or bishops alienates people from other faiths and non-believers, say officials and councillors in Islington, north London.
Head teacher John Stewart: ‘There is no reason why we should change our name’
The row is over the name of the first Church of England secondary school to be built in the borough, which lost control of education five years ago after Ofsted found it was running some of the worst schools in the country.
Yesterday there was the story of the new British reality show of watching a human body decompose. I thought this was also an accurate metaphor for British culture. We have been watching for years the decomposition of British society where increased secularism have advanced the moral decay. When the word saint can be deemed offensive you don’t need to count the maggots and pupa castings to see that British morality is rotting away.
