A COUPLE struggling to find a local school for their son cannot understand why Waitrose does not cater to their needs.
Tom and Rebecca Booker wish their favourite supermarket would educate their son Marco after finding nearby state schools to be a bit noisy and common.
Accountant Tom said: “Waitrose do a party catering service now so I’m sure they could do schools. The uniforms could have their logo on to let people know you’re prepared to pay extra for quality.”
Marketing manager Rebecca agreed: “I expect Waitrose schools would be very clean and modern like the stores, and every lesson would earn points on your loyalty card.
“The teaching would be top quality, like their fruit and veg, so pupils would go on to elite educational establishments like Oxford, Cambridge or the University of Waitrose.
“Sadly I had to tell Marco there are no Waitrose schools and he cried his eyes out. Frankly I’m disappointed because they’re normally so reliable.”
