Yvette Akonta tweeted: “Ayy how can someone get stabbed outside Richmond college”.

There are real problems at Richmond College. It is time the college was shut down.

There model results in an unsafe environment for students, and leads many astray. Shipping in students from inner London – is importing the inner London drug and knife culture into our neighbourhood.

No wonder the new sixth form are so oversubscribed locally. Many parents are rightfully worried about the impact of their 16 year olds mixing with large numbers of people shipped out of places like Battersea and Clapham (where the London riots were at the most acute).

I am a student at Richmond college and a representative of the student union for the college and I don't appreciate your general view on it. The workings inside are the opposite to what seems to me is being chucked around far too often now. The facilities are decent and the teaching is excellent more times than not. There may be a small number of students who cause issues outside of the college but is that unlike every other college/ sixth form? I in fact feel very safe in and around the site, and believe that students are given many opportunities to work to the best of their abilities. If some people are going astray in any respect, it's not due to the college, it's due to the individual. It's very unfortunate that today's events occurred as they did and I hope the student is okay and recovers well.

Nah shut up lets be real college is **** ****, the reason clowns like Twickers Bob get all worked up is because their idyllic middle class suburban utopia is brought down to earth with an all too resounding thud.

This happens, it's 99% likely the guy who got stabbed wasn't a complete stranger to the offenders. Welcome to the real world Twickenham Bob!

What college do you go to because it is most certainly not the RuTC I know. I am coming to the end of my A2 year at RuTC and I cannot wait to get out. No, I am not your typical 'I hate school' type of student. I am a student form rep, I am predicted high grades in strong academic subjects and am middle class. I am your stereotypical school-loving know it all girl.

OFSTED are in this week and I am DESPERATE for the college to go into special measures because I want it gone. I attend the college and the best thing for the whole place it to just destroy it!

I am a student at Richmond College and the only surprising thing about this is that it has not happened sooner. OFSTED are at the college, week beginning 12th May, and I am desperately hoping the college will go into special measures even though I attend it. None of the staff care anymore, they say so themselves, and the whole place should just be burnt to the ground and start over.

As a student of RuTC, my only response to this story is "So what? It's Richmond College. It was bound to happen and I'm only surprised this was off-site with all the rage and hate in that place."

In that case, and this applies to any other Richmond college students who see this post - please drop by the student union office on Friday lunch, I would really like to know what areas need targeting the most within the college, it works for me, but clearly not everyone. Any improvements can be made if we know what needs improving.

As a student, after being at RUTC for almost two years, it's hard to deny there have been a few issues along the lines of the current one. However, I don't feel that attacking where people come from is the right way to go about the problems. I don't feel unsafe, as every incident has been within certain groups of people, and not effected others ( admittedly as far as i know).

I agree that the general feeling is that staff don't care, but is it due to too many unmotivated students, which in turn makes staff more fed up.. and the cycle continues. I don't think its right to assume a complete shut down is the solution. If you care that much about your neighborhood maybe you should offer advice rather than damning something you have no idea about.

There are plans for a new secondary school, and a re working of the college for that site. This would mean 1000 less places for the college. If it gets the green light it sounds like it would be a campus for local kids, surely that's the way forward?

I swear down shut up student union is just where the fat chicks go to practice their twerking just give it in college is pants no one cares. You can't push improvements through from student union, all you can do is go cap in hand to that greedy **** of a principal who's just going to laugh at you and tell you where to stick it, he's too busy with his £150k a year wage to do anything ofc.

Also Twickenham resident you wanna throw down son?

At the end of the day, the Twickenham area is just full of middle class people who want the college closed down so there's less people from inner London coming in every day. It's societal segregation and you can vote me down if you want for being an 'ard nut but at the end of the day you know it's true.

I don't understand some of what you write, including "you wanna throw down son?" What is that supposed to mean? Is that a threat or challenge to throw down the gauntlet and have a fight?

You appear to be a very angry, frustrated young man, which is a shame as I suspect you actually probably have a great deal to offer, if only given the chance.

Do you really think it is wrong to want to live in a nice area, with thankfully little crime and where people actually talk to each other and care about the communities in which they liver?

Richmond College as you know is not on a main road. It is at the end of a usually quiet, residential road. The recent stabbings have shocked people and you should understand that. How would you feel if someone was stabbed outside your parents or your Grandparents front door?

If you really don't like coming this area which in your words is "full of middle class people", why did you choose to come to College here?

I'm not angry, or frustrated, I find it absolutely hilarious that as soon as one person gets stabbed in a middle class area, everyone of you posh **** loses your minds, when if it happened in an inner London borough, you wouldn't give a ****.

And no I don't think it's wrong to want to live in a nice area with no crime and where people talk to each other. However if you haven't realised that's not the case outside of Twickenham suburbia.

At the end of the day, this stuff happens all the time, it's not even shocking any more, as 95% of the time, it's young men **** about with drugs and women, people get angry, and shoot each other.

And honestly I absolutely hate this college, it's awful. But on the other hand, I love it, because rich mugs like you have to put up with the inner city scum on a daily basis.

I am a student at RuTC and I think the only thing that needs improvement at the college is the security team. Not to be ageist here, but most if not all of the security guards at the college are middle-aged and older. They are also very thinly spread out across the site, so if a group of people were to suddenly storm the college looking for a certain individual, they would be completely powerless. Given that there's about 3,000 people here from all different backgrounds and areas of London, it is insane to think that the college is able to survive with a small security team like the one it currently has. Either the college needs to hire more security staff who actually have the ability to prevent an attack such as this from occurring, or the police need to up their presence. Maybe if the principal didn't take home £150k a year, the college would have the funding for a well equipped security team.

Look, lets say it as it really is, I bet you anything that the victim is black and the perpetrator was also black, most knife crime is "black on black" thats why the Met police need to have a special unit just specialising in such crime. When I attended the college between 1980 and 1983, the college's students were mainly from the LOCAL AREA, maybe the surrounding 5 mile radius or so and there was zero knife crime !! You only need to watch as students walk from the college to Twickenham Station to see that the majority of students are now NON_WHITE, and all travel in from south London, etc Why are people so afraid to state the truth? If it was Chinese people stabbing people or Sikhs and Hindus stabbing people then there would be an outcry, but it isn't is it? A black man gets killed by a white man and the black man gets a memorial, but a white soldier nearly gets beheaded by black men and he gets nothing. Can someone tell me why we have MOBO awards, "music of black origin" and yet we dare not even suggest that we have a MOWO awards"music of white origin, as that would be deemed racist and would upset non-whites !! in the police force, the black police have a "federation of black police officers" but if the white police tried to have a "federation of white officers" they would be deemed to be racist. Racism works both ways, if you chose to not integrate and set yourself apart in a "black" or other ethnic group, dont be upset or have a moan if white or other people feel the need to be in their own group.
