I think I’m going to regret sharing this but here it goes…
I went to an All Girls Secondary School (England’s equivalent of high school) - it specialised in language and IT so we had a lot of high tech computers, projectors e.t.c as well as a lot of school trips to foreign countries (roughly 10 different foreign trips a year). Sounds great but meant inappropriate pictures blown up to 100x their size onto a wall and 60 sets of parents coming into the school to complain about their 15 year olds coming home from Poland with a tattoo
Bullying occurred quite a lot at my school, as you can imagine having around 800 teen girls all together, drama was an everyday thing - the real struggle was keeping up with ‘who slept with who’ blah blah blah. I lost count how many fights I witnessed, some were just little slaps, but others were quite bad and ambulances were called.
Anyone who smoked cigarette’s would go behind our sports hall as it was secluded, usually there would be someone watching out for teachers - me
Some students at my school were unbelievably smart, I mean incredible! They should have gone to a specialist school to be honest - one person is actually a published author now and had her first book published whilst she was a student! Despite what happens in Episode stories, I don’t recall bullying happening because of intelligence much. I’m not saying it never happened but it was more of a rarity.
The boys from the boy school would sneak to our school and eat lunch with us, then would run around being chased by the teachers
Of course, each year group had a specific group of girls that were more well known than others - the group in my year group were mostly nice to everyone except 2 or 3 of them who were just mean (they almost killed my classmate who was a severe asthmatic, they cornered her and sprayed deodorant in her face).
I guess my school was what you would expect from a large amount of hormonal teen girls stuck together for 8 hours everyday to be honest
I could write so much more than this but feel this is probably enough…
