RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.


The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Worst English Teacher Ever

My English teacher is worse. She misspells easy words, gets innocent people into trouble, gives too many C2's (C2 is two negative points and a sanction) and C4's (C4 is 4 negative points, removal and departamental detention), threatens us with C5's (C5 is 5 negative points and seclusion) even though only Directors of Learning, Deputy Headteachers and Headteacher can give C5, and is a homework lover. I don't mind getting a C4, because when I get it, I have a detention with the Head of English. And the Head of English at my school is my favourite English teacher. I want to move to her class, but my rubbish English teacher, my form tutor, my pastoral leader and my Director of Learning aren't going to let me :(. Last week I heard my English teacher say something about my favourite English teacher's class. At first, I thought she said I will move to my favourite English teacher's class if I'm good, but now I think she said that my favourite English teacher's class won't be any better. I couldn't hear what she was saying, because my classmates were talking over her voice. Also, this Friday she gave me five homeworks and all of them are due tomorrow. I already finished one when I was in late detention and I tried finishing the others, but they were too hard and I was not allowed to ask for help (We are not allowed to talk in detention). If I don't finish four homeworks today or at least tomorrow at school at 6 o'clock (My school starts at 8:45 but we can come in earlier.) I'll get a detention. And it won't be a departamental detention. It will be a detention with the English teacher that teaches me. Departamental detention is only for rudeness to teacher and if we constantly forget homework. And I don't forget my English homework often. And my English teacher also has a rule that if I don't want to be in her class, she's happy to see me go. I don't mind getting a C4 from the English teacher, but I do mind getting in trouble for no reason, her not teaching properly, getting a C2 from her and her giving five homeworks in one day and having only 3 days to do it. If she dares give me a detention for not finishing five hard homeworks in three days, I'll move classes. Plus my rubbish English teacher stole my pencil case!
