Royal Grammar School Respond to Homophobic Maths Test

Yesterday, we wrote about a shocking question which appeared in maths homework received by students of Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe.

Now, we have a couple of updates for you. Firstly, the original poster of the image showing the homophobic maths homework has said that the person responsible is a retired teacher. Apparently, he was previously employed by the school and now writes these “posers” as a volunteer, which are then assigned as maths homework by most teachers.

The homework in question.

The homework in question.

So while the person responsible was no longer employed by the school at the time of writing this particular homework, it was distributed by RGS’ teachers.

The headmaster Philip Wayne spoke to the Bucks Free Press, saying: “I’m sorry on behalf of the whole school community of governors, staff and boys for any offence this has caused.”

“First few boys to pick up the test, noticed the question concerned and referred it to staff. As soon as it was picked up it was quickly withdrawn from the department. He [the school volunteer] will not be returning to RGS.”

“Staff are expected to abide by the teachers standards if they’re on the payroll or not. Social media has done its work very quickly as you can imagine, and when it was brought to my attention and I dealt with it.”
