Sp. A

All my friends from private school are snobbish now because they moved from the state school I go to. I don’t understand why everyone thinks private schools are better. I’m not saying I have anything against private schools, but it does make me a bit upset when I see all the people that used to go to state school acting snobbish because of a silly little thing like having more lessons in biology, physics and chemistry than I have in my school.

 Sp. B

I hated my state school that I went to when I was younger. But don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against state schools in general. I know I was just unlucky. My brother and sister stayed at a state school right up until their final exams. They both got really good grades, which proves that private school education isn’t better for everyone. As for me, I found that people were friendlier in my private school, and I felt a lot happier. I know this is not always the case, because my brother and sister enjoyed going to the state school.

Sp. C

Well, I would like to say< I go to a private school and I was shocked at how much some people take for granted. One of my classmates got a plasma screen TV for help birthday and a laptop for Christmas, and she just spoke about them just as if they were ordinary presents, nothing special. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with it, just sometimes if you have a lot of money, it is important to remember that you are lucky, because some families are so poor that they have no money to buy a TV-set in the sales.

Sp. D

A lot of people who go to my private school are not that rich at all. My parents just wanted the best education for me and this school was the right choice. Smaller classes are much better, I found this from my own experience. Here we do separate sciences and I think it allows people to understand which sciences they like and see which they are good at. You can also study physics, chemistry and biology in much more detail as well as languages, history and so on.

Sp. E

I go to private school, and we have to wear a uniform and I know why we have to have it. If the people in my school didn’t have to wear it then they would come to school in too short skirts or torn trousers. And you always get the people who can come into school and look almost like Halloween, which make up running down their faces and chains hanging off every place. Not the right thing to wear to school I think. School uniform disciplines pupils and make them look nice and clean.

Sp. F

I go to a busy city centre school, I think there are about 1100 pupils and about 120 teachers. The corridors are really narrow in some of the buildings and there are crowds of pupils running and pushing when the bell goes and everyone is there. One of the corridors is so narrow that we have a ‘one way  system’. The school definitely needs broader corridors as well as larger classrooms.

A school Story.

It happened at my private school thirty odd years ago, and I still can’t explain it. I came to that school in September  and among the boys who arrived on the same day was one whom I took to. I will call him McLeod. The school was a large one^ there must have been from 120 to 130 boys there as a rule, and so a considerable staff of masters were required. One term a new master made his appearance. His name was Sampson. He was a tall, well-built, pale, black-bearded man. I think we liked him. He had travelled a good deal, and had stories which amused us on our school walks, so there was some competition among us to get a chance to listen to him.

Well, the first odd thing that happened was this. Sampson was doing Latin grammar with us. One of his favourite methods was to make us construct sentences out of our own heads to illustrate the rules he was trying to teach us. Now on this occasion he ordered us each to make a sentence bringing in the verb memini, ‘I remember’. Well most of us made up some ordinary sentences as ‘I remember my father’, but the boy I mentioned – McLeod – was evidently thinking of something more interesting than that. Finely, very quickly he wrote a couple of lines  on his paper, and showed it up with the rest. The phrase was “Remember the lake among the four oaks”. Later McLeod told me that it had just come into his head. When Sampson read it he got up and went to the mantel-piece and stopped quite a long time without saying anything looking really embarrassed.  Then he wanted to know why McLeod had put it down, and where his family lived, and if there was such a lake there, and things like that.

There was one other incident of the same kind. We were told to make a conditional sentence, expressing a future consequence. We did it and showed up our bits of papers, and Sampson began looking though them. All at once he got up, made some odd sort of noise in his throat, and rushed out. I noticed that he hadn’t taken any of the papers with him, so we went to look at them on his desk. The top paper on the desk was written with red ink – and it wasn’t in anyone’s handwriting who was in the class. I  questioned everyone myself! Then I thought of counting the bits of paper: there were seventeen of them on the desk, and sixteen boys in the form. I put the extra paper in my bag and kept it. The phrase on it was simple and harmless enough: ‘If you don’t come to me, I’ll come to you’. That same afternoon I took it out of my bag – I know for certain it was the same bit of paper, for I made a finger mark on it – and there was no single  piece of writing on it!

The next day Sampson was in school again, much as usual. That night the third and the last incident in my story happened.  We – McLeod and I – slept in a bedroom the windows of which looked out of the main building of the school. Sampson slept in the main building on the first floor. At an hour which I can’t remember exactly, but some time between one and two, I was woken by somebody was shaking me. I saw McLeod in the light of the moon which was looking right into our windows. ‘Come’, - he said,- ‘come there’s someone getting on Sampson’s window-still and looking in.’ ‘What sort of man? Is anyone from the senior class going to play a trick on him? Or was it a burglar?!’ McLeod seem unwilling to answer. ‘I don’t know,’ he said, ‘but I can tell you one thing – he was a thin as a rail, and water was running down his hair and clothing and, ‘he said looking round and whispering as if he hardly liked to hear himself, ‘I’m not at all sure that he was alive.’ Naturally I came and looked, and naturally there was no one there.

And next day Mr. Sampson was gone: not to be found, and I believed not trace of him has ever come to light since. Neither McLeod nor I ever mentioned what we had seen to anyone. We seemed unable to speak about it. We both felt strange horror which neither could explain.
