    Some of you probably don't understand how lucky you are, these are not schools, they are palaces.

    We didn't even have grass. I think from now on we should be able to send a picture of our school to UCAS for some sympathy offers.

    It's genuinely annoying me.

    I had to compete with people that come from places that look like Hogwarts?

    She is a very pretty girl, just checked to see if I was friends with her on Facebook.
    Olympic swimming is not my calling, I get a bit of sponsorship money that pays for my kit, travel and accomodation, thats it. I won't make a career out of it. :p:
    She is! some people have it all :rolleyes: That's a shame, but you can always try out during uni anyways Well, at least you get paid to do something fun, thats awesome! (although i suppose not fun ALL the time..)

    Training 24 hours a week does get tiresome. Its the people that make it worth it. :p:
    i imagine spending 1/7th of your time a week in a pool gets exhausting!
    That's nice, in some sports people can be a bit *****y- clearly, swimmers are nice then

    Don't let it fool you. It was an absolutely awful school, delightfully nicknamed as the 'starting point for prison.'

    Chesnut Grove School, Balham.

    I thought I recognised the school you posted! It got so bad for Chestnut when I was there that anyone wearing a green jumper wasn't allowed into ANY of the shops on the high road! Bad times..

    I know a couple of people who went to La Retraite. Almost ended up there myself!

    This is the High School I went to. It was a great school, but it definitely doesn't deserve the title of 'Language College' I doubt offering only French and Spanish at GCSE is really Language College standard. I do miss it (slightly) but lots of teachers (including the headteacher) are leaving this year.
    If you live in Manchester, you may have seen it on the news after a teacher's drink was poisoned with whiteboard cleaner (already going downhill now that the headteacher's leaving )

    This is the college I'll be going to in September, it's really nice . Though it's nothing compared to the other schools I've seen on here (Ever so jealous :rolleyes:) and there's quite a bit of building work going on.

    There are no pics of my secondary school as it was when I went- it was rebuilt before it fell.down lol (seriously the walls and topic had holes in then and there was no heating!) but if you would like to look on youtube there is a video showcasing the old building - search bolsover school jai ho.

    I'm not sure how to upload pics is my sixth form. It looks like a spaceship from google search though!
