    My old school was 8:45 - 3:10.

    But my current school is 8:45 - 4.00 although it's post 16 so I don't always finish and start at that time.

    The best time to finish imo is around 3 o'clock.

    Erm... Not true in the slightest. I had 20 mins for break and 55mins for lunch which means I had 6hrs20 of school a day which seems on par, and even more on some occasions, with the amount of time people spent at school, including breaks.
    So you agree that you had a better education as you spent more time in school? Sure, you spent more time in school, but this does not mean you had longer lessons, or did you? :confused:

    I think it's already been established that I did... And yes, I did have a better education than most, fortunately for me.

    I was on the bus yesterday at 2.55pm and was amazed to see loads of school kids on it. Apparently they start school at 8.45am and finished at 2.45pm.

    I was flabbergasted because I started school at 8.25am and finished at 4.00pm. That means that every day, I had an extra 1hr35mins of school. That's 7hrs55mins. With 36 weeks in a school year, that's an extra 285hrs a year, or the equivalent to 47.5 shorter school days. That's 9.5 weeks extra, a year. That means in 5 years, I had the equivalent to a whole school year, plus 1 extra term of schooling.

    So when did you start and finish school?
    At my secondary school, we had reg between 8.45 and 9am and would finish at 3pm.
    At my sixth Form school, they started at 8.45 (though we didn't have to come in until 9am) and it ended at 3.20pm.

    The only reason they ended later though is because there's another big school literally 5 mins walk away and most of the kids from both school's have to use public transport to get back into the city centre...

    My senior school was 8.50 to 3.15. We had a 20 min morning break and a 40 min lunch. also 20 min registration in the morning and 5 in the afternoon. So our lessons were 50 mins but I can't remember if we had 5 or 6 a day. I think 6, I could work it out from the times but cba

    The school day starts at 8:30 and finishes at 3:30, but obviously in sixth form it can vary loads. Now that I have some late starts/early finishes, I don't know how I coped with the 7 hour day for 5 years...
