19 Undeniable Signs You Went To Secondary School In A Small Town
It was kind of a crappy school, but it was your kind of crappy school.
Despite looking charming from the outside, your school probably hadn't received funding since the '70s.
And there was one part of the school in particular that was reaaaaly old.
So when your school installed SMART boards it was a pretty big deal.
Because VHS as a format existed way longer at your school than it did in the outside world.
Due to the limited number of staff, teachers were sometimes forced to multi-task.
Rooms were also multi-purpose.
When it came to textbooks they were shared between multiple people.
And they were way overused, which meant they'd been graffitied to hell and back.
All of your sports teams were always incredibly crap.
It didn't help that the football goals on your school field were built without nets.
You knew everyone in one way or another, which meant you were more likely to have friends in a different year group.
You also probably had at least one out-of-school connection to a teacher.
And you knew a lot about their personal lives, which meant that rumours were rampant.
All of the cabins meant there were almost as many classrooms outside as there were inside.
Assemblies were spent sitting on the floor.
Where the school motto, which played on the size of the school, was often repeated.
School trips were always to the same local attractions.
And if you misbehaved the headmaster/mistress was sure to let you know how you "let the whole community down".
Sure it was kind of a crap school, but it was your kind of crap school.
