    "Bullying is banned in this school" 🙄😒
    Unfortunately, it's the same in every school; I think bullying is one of those things that just won't ever stop.

    Having went to a pretty religious primary school, that insisted pushing their indoctrination even during P.E most of it was a lie.

    Learnt some absolute bangers though like "'He's got the whole world in his hands', 'All things bright and beautiful' and my personal favourite and all time classic 'Little Donkey'.

    In Reception or Year 1, they would tell us if we worked hard enough they would wheel in the TV and show us a video.

    They obviously removed the wheels...

    Not quite a teacher but the jumped up receptionist at my school always threatened us that if we kept being late she would 'tell UCAS' and we wouldn't get into uni. Stupid *****.*

    At beginning of year 8: I'll bake you guys cake every week!

    At the end of year 9, having had absolutely no cake: Hey, I totally baked you guys cake every week.

    Turns out she'd been giving it to a different class...

    This is a golden thread. Join in with the discussion before 26 August 2016 to be in with the chance of winning an iPad air 2!

    I remember being in reception, so only about 4 or 5, and our teacher told us that a rocket was going to the moon that day and if we worked really really quietly we'd be able to hear it take-off..

    It totally worked. We were silent for the whole day, but never did hear that rocket go off.



    What are the fibs your teachers told you at school to get you to be quiet, or stop asking silly questions?


    Other golden threads:

    1. List the fibs your teacher told you at school

    2. What's your ultimate summer tune?

    3. Which GCSE subject can you not wait to ditch?

    4. Sum up how you’re feeling about results day in a meme or gif

    5. How do you plan to celebrate your exam results?

    6. Starting uni: what are you most excited about?

    7. One essential piece of advice you'd give to someone starting their A-levels

    8. What's the one thing will get you through results day?


    The competition runs from 3 August to 23:59 on 26 August 2016. The random draw will be made on 30 August 2016.
    That one kid who fell off his chair... and DIED!!

    Latin teacher told me I could get no higher than a B. Ended up proving her wrong with full marks for 3 out of 4 exams and losing only 4 UMS in total

    You have to do that homework... It matters.
    This test won't contribute to your grades.
    It's not a hard test.
    She's a nice supply teacher honest.

    High school teachers tell a lot of fibs.

    My physics teacher, who was a very old lady, used to tell many stories about her life. Pretty sure the truth was a bit changed. That + the actual physics that were taught; we need to update the curriculum!!!

    -Your French coursework is an a, you'll be fine (um, no, more like an e)
    -If you don't take a language you won't get into uni
    -French (seeing a pattern here?) gcse is a good introduction to the language
    -There's been a letter on the writing paper every year for the last decade, let's do lots of revision for it
    -There was a speech last year, that won't come up (wjec 🙄)
    -We listen to what you say at student parliament
    -We're fixing the toilets this year (heard that every year from y7, I just left y11 and they sorted them this year 😒)
