I got decent grades and made some good friends along the way.
My cousin goes to a private school and isnt any better off than me and my sister.
That makes you proud?

Nope. I've deeply regretted my decision in recent years, mostly as I began to realise that those at decent private/grammar schools usually didn't experience the vulgar atmosphere and brutishness of my state comprehensive.

That's not to say my school is bad though. I'd definitely say my mother picked the best state school in my area when I was 11, and it's improved since then. But as of late I've begun to resent the very lazy attitude and lack of opportunities at my school compared to the local independent ones.

Yes.

It was an excellent experience.
What was good about it exactly? Did you have any experience of state schools or was it just private schools for you?

No, but I wish my parents were wealthy enough to send me to a private school. If I went there, I'd get at least 10 A*s at GCSE (as opposed to the 7 I think I'll get).

Oh well.

No. I've visited private schools on a few occasions for outreach activities and they creep me out.

Private school so fun really international - 30 different nationalities
But within a couple of years you kind of don't care where everyone's from because you're so used to them. Then it just becomes like another school...

I went to private school on a scholarship. It was good. Stopped me going off the rails like my brother, I dread to think where I'd be now if I hadn't. Plenty of people do well in state schools but I would not have been one of them, particularly due to the quality of the ones around me.

I had a massive laugh every single day at my private school. I probably would have at a regular school too, albeit not whilst at the top of Mt. Vesuvius, or skiing in Austria, or sunning myself in the south of France.

yeah whatever secretly you wish your parents invested into your education like mine. My parents care.
It's because of people like you I'm glad I didn't go to a private school.

My mum wants me to go to private school but my dad refused.
To be fair, my school has been pretty good and I'm currently holding three uni offers and two interviews so it clearly hasn't screwed me up too much.
