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.

Sad I did something bad during Sports Day and I think I'll get excluded from school.

Yesterday, it was Sports Day. I touched my Form Tutor three times after being told not to.

The first time was when we were taking a class picture, I touched her hip. Everyone had to squeeze, so I couldn't move my hand away from her hip.

The second time was during tug of war. I touched her arm and stepped on her foot.

The third time was after soccer. I was standing in between my Form Tutor and my co-tutor and touched my Form Tutor's elbow. I didn't touch my co-tutor though.

All three were accidents. The first time I touched her yesterday was inappropriate. I felt uncomfortable and I bet my Form Tutor felt the same way. When we were taking a class picture, she had to keep quiet, so even if she wanted to tell me to stop, she couldn't.

And what if my Pastoral Leader sees the picture? What if I get permanently excluded for touching my Form Tutor's hip? And what if my Form Tutor gets in trouble? I was planning to tell my Pastoral Leader about it because when I tell her before someone else does, I usually get in less trouble.

What should I do? I don't want to get excluded.
