    Before I ask the actual questions, lemme give you some background knowledge.

    I am in year 11 in a very small private school (total ~200 students yr7-11). Our study leave begins this Friday, so naturally, our class of 20 students want to have some fun and take some risks before the study leave.

    We found a way to climb onto the school roof through the common room afforded to us for revision, the school is 4 stories high. We've been going up there in small groups for around a week now, and now some teacher thinks she say someone up there through some windows, and reported it to the headteacher. He spoke to us, but since we all denied it, and there was no proof, he threatened to expel, and not allow sitting of GCSE exams if he found anyone messing around. He became headteacher just this year and is a complete control freak.

    I am the head boy, have never been suspended or reported for major issues i.e fighting. I have a completely clean track record from yr7, but want to have some fun before I leave.

    I am sure the headteacher will try to expel me, but I am friendly with the actual governors, and nearly all the teachers, and am sure if I can contend the expulsion, I will be allowed to sit my exams, I don't really care about the last two days of coming to school.

    Is it worth it to go back onto the roof? It's unlikely I will be caught again, since I'll make sure to keep away from any place I can be seen, and all of the teachers on the top floor would not get me into trouble, since it is harmless, and are friendly. Only if the head teacher tried stalking the roof, or inspecting our revision room in the middle of me going up or down, would I be caught.

    Is it worth it to just go ahead and do it? I won't get another chance at this, and I have been too docile since yr7.

    Ooh! Private school, little rich boy!

    Go for it, you won't get expelled, and the threat of you not sitting your GCSE's are empty. Take risks!
