Brighton school has 'embarrassing' road marking outside it

Back to ‘shcool’? Contractors make ’embarrassing’ spelling mistake when painting road markings outside academy in Brighton

  • Mistake was noticed by Portslade Aldridge Community Academy in Brighton
  • The road had been resurfaced in preparation for the school’s re-opening 
  • The mistake has now been put right at no extra cost to the council  

Road marking painters went straight to bottom of the class – after spelling the word school wrong.

Contractors spelt out the non-word ‘shcool’ outside Brighton’s Portslade Aldridge Community Academy (PACA) on Chalky Road on Friday. 

They quickly realised their mistake, but not before amused locals managed to snap some pictures and post cheeky comments online.

Social media users took the opportunity to take photos and make some cheeky comments online 

The road sign was done in preparation for Portslade Aldridge Community Academy to welcome it’s students back to school

Robert Tee wrote: ‘Hopefully the person who wrote the sign did not graduate from there as that would be so embarrassing as he needs to attend some evening classes. Think he should get an F grade and some extra homework.’

Brighton and Hove City Councillor Peter Atkinson, who represents the North Portslade ward, told The Argus: ‘They obviously didn’t have a spell checker with them.’ 

A spokesperson from the council added: ‘Unfortunately our contractor carrying out our resurfacing work on Chalky Road outside PACA originally misspelt the word ”school”.

‘This has now been put right at no cost to the council.’

The road had been resurfaced before the school started back Monday.
