    Even though I left my school two years ago, they still reject my friend requests on facebook. I would like to keep in contact with them, so it's a bit upsetting, thanks, even though I may sound like a fool.

    Because if they accept you they'll feel obliged to accept all ex-pupils and will probably end up getting hate mail etc.

    Because they don't want any students to have access to their trollied pictures! :p: You can see them, and then people who you're friends with could follow your links. Soon the whole school will have seen their knickers.

    i guess if they excepted all ex pupils they would have thousands of friends and their news feed would just be full of drunken pictures from nightclubs. teachers have to be really careful who they accept because at my school its actually not allowed for them to accept students.

    because they either didn't like you or they don't accept anyone.

    I searched all my old teachers' Facebook, and gosh some of the pictures they had up...
    I can easily understand why they wouldn't want any ex-pupils adding them...

    Teachers usually only accept ex-pupils whom they believe will be no thread to themselves in terms of professionalism.
    I have one or two teachers on my Facebook from my old school, they are the ones I got on with and still speak to.

    NB: Teachers should not accept Facebook Friend Requests from current pupils.

    Send them a message, saying thanks for their lessons, that your grateful for what they have done, and your happy in Uni. Something along those lines. They might accept.
