Some subjects we like but we have a teacher or taught in a different way. I was thinking about this.
Also I have left school.

Whilst teachers do have their own teaching styles and one size does not fit all, I've never really had a problem with it.
As i gotten older, I realised that it wasn't actually school itself that made me hate school. It was actually the students who tend to misbehave and cause trouble; they're the ones that makes lessons difficult.

personally for me it is due to the teachers/ teaching style. I have chosen computing/ tech for my career and love it to bits, but hate the subject and get bad grades. I isolated for a lot of the first bit of Year 12 and struggled to stay to pace. My teachers constantly put me down and even told me not to do the subject, and not do this career. I am having to teach myself half the spec. So yh school has sapped the fun out of learning for me. I used to enjoy studying but now its literally painful to do. Can't wait to be out of here.

No. I loved school. I despise every single second of university and I wish I had never attended. That’s not fun at all.

i think there's something about learning being attached to receiving a grade or qualification that can make learning less fun for a lot of people. Studying for a formal qualification in anything I'm really passionate about would make me miserable about as I'd loose interest in it.

A lot of lessons are pretty uninspiring too tbh.

No, because I still enjoyed learning stuff on my own.

But I hated being drilled for exam taking, and I think I did more for myself in school than my teachers did for me. I was pretty disengaged and bored.

The subjects where teachers were 'bad' didn't necessarily impact me at all. Where they couldn't teach, I'd teach myself (and that was fun).

I had a bad GCSE ICT teacher which put me off working in tech for 8 years.

That's unfortunate. My ICT teacher was really good.
