    IRL people probably just think it without saying it, but become braver online due to anonymity.
    I live in Qatar in the Middle East and I'm fairly sure the majority of the locals are richer than any of us expats at private schools :rofl:

    So in the UK that's probably true but I doubt it over here

    A lot during the younger years, not much now as I have two jobs so I don't miss out anymore on trips etc, so now I only notice it when discussing politics, as I'm far more left-wing than my peers
    It's nice to have friends around yeah, and yes it's a good laugh, but yes it can be very strict. I really like the matrons/mistresses though, and I stay out of trouble so I stay on their good side.
    Nope, common rooms and kitchens only
    Yes, to the gym, sports courts and the boy's boarding houses, providing rooms are tidy etc
    Nope, breakfast is at half 7, snooze you lose
    Recently just lost 5 pupils to expulsion due to drug related issues, and their unfortunately quite common, many people get up to god knows what in certain spots that everyone seems to know about, but like I say, I stay out of trouble

    So do you go out at all? Weekends?

    I guess your routine during term time is pretty dominated by school.


    Do you think you will let go at uni?

    Slut it out big time. :teehee:

    You might enjoy PPE and Oxford because they study politics, philosophy and economics.
    My mum's friend did that, it's a little daunting for me, as my maths skills leave much to be desired!

    Yeah weekends are more my thing
    Very much so, and probably not, i'm not a big believer in promiscuity, but that's not to say I would judge anyone else choosing to do so

    Be nice, guys, c'mon… :noway:

    What's it like boarding? Do you think it's better than not boarding? Why/why not? What's your overall experience been like so far?

    It's fine, I was expecting a lot of that, I'm just hoping to iron out some stereotypes
    I love it! Much better, I have a great laugh with the girls! It's closer to school, and I'm always within a short walk from a teacher of any subject, so I get a lot of help when needed
    I've loved it, I've only recently began boarding, however

    A ruthless deconstruction of your presented image, which, incidentally, as one girl to another, I find very arch.

    What do you mean by arch sorry?:')
    Again, I don't mind the 'ruthless destruction'

    Thank you, it's been an absoloute blessing! Mind, I've had to upkeep A's and A*'s whilst I've had it, or it's removed, so It's definitely added pressure!
