Signs you went to a dodgy British high school.
They say school years are the best years of your life, and although it could be a right laugh, your school certainly had it’s downfalls…
- INTENSE RIVALRY WITH THE NEXT CLOSEST HIGH SCHOOL
For unknown reasons, you just really hated all the other local high schools (almost as much as you hated
your own). There was no other situation as tense as going on a school trip to another high school for
sports day. They often resulted in blood baths.
- OLD MOBILE BUILDINGS
Your school probably had moldy, old mobile buildings that probably should’ve been demolished at least
ten years ago. You probably had at least one lesson in them because your science room had a gas leak…
- HEATING ISSUES
The radiators either didn’t work at all, or they were stuck on full heat; it was die of hypothermia or die of
heatstroke – no inbetween.
- DODGY DEALINGS
I don’t mean drugs, I mean weird things like shag-bands and Red Bull got banned because of the
black market system going on in the corridors.
- UNIFORM BATTLE
You probably found yourself worrying about your uniform more than you did about your education.
For whatever reason, the school thought your pierced ears and tight trousers were going to be more
distracting during your lesson than that racist, homophobic kid who sat on the back row.
- SMOKING TREE
There was probably one tree on your school field that was surrounded by smokers and the haze of tobacco
usually went unnoticed by patrolling teachers and dinner ladies.
- GETTING MUGGED BY SEAGULLS
The seagulls would make their attacks during break and lunchtime and you can guarantee someone will
get crapped on, and someone will have their sandwich stolen.
- TEXT BOOK PROBLEMS
You probably had to share a text book between three of you. And they probably dated back to the 80s and
had a decades worth of graffiti in them.
