    ahh, there's too much. But here's a few things:

    - I have so many funny memories from years 7, 8 and 9
    - Iceland trip in year 11 amazing!
    - my English teacher's highly imaginative analysis of poetry xD
    - Graphics and Art year 10/11 - especially art!
    - March, April and May of year 11 - there was quite a lot of warm weather, I have lots of good memories from breaks/lunches in which I sat on the grass making daisy-chains, talking about random stuff, listening to music and sunbathing with my best friends
    - exam time - no, seriously - because the weather was gorgeous, I could go home after each exam and instead of stressing between exams I just relaxed.

    I agree leaving it, they treated me like **** at gcse and force fed me foundation content, so glad they are more mature to me now at alevel...

    Going to France with a few year 10 French students and year 11 aswell and the French teachers (I was in year 11). It was just a great experience and I had a great time talking to this whole group of people I'd never talk to.

    Prom. This was just one of the best times, everyone just let loose and it was a night to remember.

    Every lunchtime in year 11. Me & a few friends would spend it in one of the maths teacher's room, and we'd just start socialising, it sounds dumb, but you had to be there to understand.

    Results day. Finding out I did way better than I thought I did was just great, and a great way to leave.

    I go to an all girls school so the best part was definitely being in year 7-9 and seeing a rare specimen of sixth form TLP male students. Wow. They weren't even that cute, just wow. You should have seen the crowds that would be peeking outside my form room door...

    Seriously though, I don't know... It's hard to pin point a specific memory.

    Every time my Geography teacher said 'yesterday' bursting into the song Yesterday by the Beatles.

    In the words of Morrissey however, 'I am so glad to grow older, to move away from those awful times'.

    So many good moments.

    Once when me and a group of friends started humming when it was perfectly quiet in assembly and gradually more and more people joined in until everyone was doing it.

    The head teacher went crazy :P

    Having a water fight on the quad and accidently spraying a teacher was also a pretty good moment.

    After my two best friends and I had our last exam, and we ran, skipped and clicked our heels all the way to the Cafe in town where we had deluxe bowls of hot chocolate .

    My form had a phase of this in year 9 (back when we weren't doing GCSEs and virtually all of our classes apart from English and maths were together) and it used to wind teachers up so much! ... Some didn't even notice though, slightly concerning.

    Probably the best was getting my GCSE grades at the end and performing a hell of a lot better than some of my teachers led me to believe (ahem Maths teacher - i'm talking to you). Other than that I had such a **** time I basically just pretend that secondary school never happened.

    Probably when about 10 others and I burned our ties on the last full day of Year 11, on a makeshift BBQ, only to be told that we still needed to wear them when we sat our GCSE exams. Felt like such a prat! :rolleyes:

    might sound strange but I have really favourable memories of the mock exams. The freedom :rolleyes:
