    Other than the people of this area, the education was poor.

    Last year people were making a big deal that 50% of their year 11's left with 5 A*-c GCSEs that year. Apparently this is an achievement.

    If I didn't know any better, I'd be thinking you came to my school.
    It was okay on most days, full of **** the next.
    Spent most of my time eating and sleeping in lessons.

    Jamie Oliver is a ****.

    My biology and sex ed teacher was my ex-PE teacher.

    He taught me that contraceptive pills go up the vag and a girl can't get pregnant if the guy doesn't come inside her. :ahee:

    No, hated it to death at the time, but rather miss it. Its an irrational longing but in hindsight people tend to say they enjoyed it more than they realised. Wouldn't go back though.

    Oh why, I didn't quite fit in with the people, I had a group but I was a tag along, the school was rough too.

    It was ok, but it paled in comparison to uni. I don't think I had a particularly rough time at all, but I just didn't have much fun. Boys' school, so nuff said.

    Education wise my school was **** (I believe I had the highest grades of any male in my year with 4 As, 5 Bs and a D or something. The school was gonna get shut down as I was going into year 9 but got got taken over by a load of new chaps) but I still had fun. Good friends, no job, didn't do any school work, just pissed around, it was great. ;p

    - football nearly everyday
    - do ******* in lessons
    - rinse substitute teachers
    - rinse most teachers in general anyway
    - finding out the wonders of smoking, drinking and other drugs?
    - starting my first proper social life

    A lot of reasons why I enjoyed it.

    I hated school when I was in Year 7,8,9. Because my school is specialist in performing arts we had to do Drama and Dance..But when we got to do our options in Year 10 and 11, I started to love school.
    And now I've left...I'm sad and I want to go back
