Posted on

1. Strawpedo-ing WKD blues.

2. Putting as inappropriate a name on your leavers' hoodie as you could get away with.

4. Planning huge and destructive pranks for the final day of term – but settling for something like this in case you got banned from prom.

5. Doodling all over your homework diary constantly.

8. Attributing way too much significance to your year 11 leaver's prom.

11. Suffering the agony of having to study through the only sunshine Britain ever gets every March to May.

12. Being really excited about passing your driving test - until you realise you'll have to drive your mates everywhere.

13. Revising for your GCSEs with CGP Books.

14. Spending every winter hoping for a Snow Day.

15. Bleaching parts of your hair badly because your ma wouldn't pay for a hairdresser to do it.
