    Why were you throwing grapes in the first place? That was a childish thing to do.

    You might be able to appeal.

    Suspended for throwing grapes? That sounds ridiculous, my school often hasn't suspended people that got involved in actual fistfights. Are you giving us all the relevant detail here?

    This depends what your school's discipline policy is (you might be able to download it from their website). Every school should have a suspension and exclusion policy, and if you can't access it online, request it as soon as possible. Generally, if you feel that it is a disproportionate punishment and that suspending you will be detrimental to your academic progress then you should put this in writing to your head of year or whoever gave you the punishment. You may find that you get a better response if this comes from your parents. If I was in your situation, I'd have my parents phone this person and request a meeting ASAP to discuss why you/they feel that this is inappropriate. Obviously though, you shouldn't have been throwing grapes and you will have to accept some sort of punishment for this. Regarding your rights, the Gov.uk website has some info (linked below).

    'Just been' implying very recently, i.e. today.

    Just is an intensifier, so here means very recently. I'm not getting into an argument of semantics with you. I think that you're probably trolling. If not, then take your punishment, by the time you appeal, it'll be over and you were in the wrong.

    Nope but I think we should all be punished equally

    Don't think I'd waste my time writing 2 forums for the sake of a troll

    Yes it is, but each to their own. 'have a fairly clean record' also suggests that there's more to this story than meets the eye.
