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.

Teacher Rooting Through Bag - Pupil Excluded

Today a lad in my year had his bag searched by a teacher without permission, I understand they CAN do this if they suspect a pupil to have contraband on them. The guy sells stuff in school, chocolate and crisps.

The teacher found a small tub of creatine in his bag because this lad goes to the gym and is pretty well built, nothing out of the ordinary he just looks after himself.

Anyway the teacher grassed on him to senior management and he was excluded from school, nobody knows how long for. Teacher's excuse; "You have to be 16 to have that".

Whether he is 15 or 16 I don't know. However it just made me absolutely fucking steam today and I need to get it out. He wasn't even seen taking it in school or anything - just shows how the smallest, insignificant things can get scruitinised and overblown.

P.S I swear this is racist discrimination since the dude is black. If it was a person on the football team (all white by the way) or a girl, yes our school is that sexist, then nothing would have come of it. Man I hate our school.

"Lad?"
"Crisps?"
What kind of backwards hick-nation do you live in?
