Roy, I was so bullied at school. Junior i was picked on and often beaten up because my clothes were too good and considered posh. :(
 
Senior school was all girls and it did not get much better. I was a bit of a shrinking violet. Things changed once i left. Confidence grew and i found a new life. :)
 
I feel so sorry to those bullied but at least they do something about it these days.

I'm afraid I don't think I gained that much from school, if you were not in the top few you got forgotten, they seemed to encourage the clever ones and leave the others behind.

HI Jacky
              this might sound odd but its made you a better person because you have been on the receiving end of it and you understand what it does to kids and adults and how they feel roy
each day is a blessing and I bless each day when it comes

looking back on your time at school was it good or did you feel better after you left

Roy,
 
Schools made possible all that has followed them.....I enjoyed them & have enjoyed the great majority of that which as followed them, like today.

There was nothing I really disliked at school apart from two things: 1. the cane, though it was never as bad as you thought it might be, and 2.having to go to that house afterward!

Frankly, I used to wish that school was 300+ days a year as I couldn't get enough of the free dinners O0

                       when i left hope street school i went to st patricks  in the six weeks summer holidays upper highgat school was open for school dinners   and each day you could get your school dinner only if you had free school dinners on Friday they would give you five tickets with the letter f on the ticket
 
 its only now when you think about it how poor us kids must have been

Bless you Tramp.
 
I used to like the dinners too, especially the puds.
loved country dancing, sports, PE. all the physical lessons.  I especially liked being in the school plays.
