I know this may only get to a few. But I would love to hear what some of you got up to if you had to go away to school and your stories may amuse others.
We had to curtsey to the Head every night and if caught talking or whatever after lights were put out, all the dormatory had to go to the Head's sitting room and remain there for a while etc.

I didn't board but our girls grammar school was like St Trinians. Dressed in ridiculous uniform which most of us tried to "tart" up. Being taught by ladies, mostly single, probably sadly because of the war but we were merciless we young things of the sixties. Such japes some of us got up to but never anything malicious. . . .

NEWQUAY your school sounds like mine. Gym slip length measured every week and woe betide anyone caught wearing white knickers. I still do not wear white ones so the old bat who made my life a misery seems to have won in the end.

We had to wear white ones underneath our navy ones!
