    I think I'd go Year 9 too George - though as with most things I change like the wind

    In Year 7 I dreamed of being in with the tough guys of Year 11 - then in Year 10/11 wanted to be back in Year 7 tbh!!

    The last year in primary (junior) school, 1977-78. A lovely young teacher, Miss Billington, we were her very first class after she qualified has a teacher. It was a really great year. The last year we had fun and games in the school yard.
    Who cared about rules when you were young?

    I had 9and still too) retain a love/hate relationship about First Year at secondary (or Year 7 in Today's currency)

    Admitted as I have said - like many others on here I was bullied for everything - aka being a loaner, not fitting in 9and when i did follow the crowd with what I did, cos they asked me to) they rejected me - but if somebody had gfiven me a Crystal Ball to be Mystic Meg either at 4 yerars old or at 18/20 - which is amazing as I can not still believe 1996/1997 was only 4 years after leaving Secondary and only 6 after Margret Thatcher only imposed the dreaded Poll Tax - to put thoise 3 years in relation to Secondary School is too cosmic dust-fied/hazy-fied for words for me - given at age 20 that was 1997 and I had my 21st in 98

    Though yeah going back to the Crystal Ball - if I only could have seen/listened to what someone said, I'd have done First Year and 2nd so, so differently - not be wimpy etc as I was and letting my Year-group and older Years bully me I'd sure have been different about it! Too though on the other side of the coin too - Year 7 and 8 for/to me (but Year 8 first 6 months) was really "Boys Own Stuff" and that is no word of a lie at all - it's so like my Step-Dad says about his Fishing days of his late Teens/20s - me and about 6 of us mates was so, so close as mates and we alternated with each other as MBF (male best friends) every wek if not every day! True there was jelousy at divisions arrising in each 2 lads' Camp - but that taught me so much ..... until the inevitable rotten Year 9

    Then after that I met my best, best best made of my first 1/12 years of my life probably 4 times after leaving that school in 1990 in the Years 1995 (twice) and another Year in-between (I've forgot which) and 2005/2006 and possibly 2 phone-calls .... but hey that's life like Football and it's Swings and Roundabouts are lol

    Ah no, my friend. What I meant was that I didn't HAVE a good school year let alone a favourite one. I suppose some were less vile than others, but none which could be deemed favourite.

    If you have read any of my depressing sub-dickensian posts to do with schooldays, you'll have picked up on the sarcasm of that statement.

    You're right there. I have to say I envy what schoolkids have nowadays.

    Mmmmm I don't think I'd survive on today's high schools . The pressures in and out of schools are tremendous .

    Also I have no idea how on earth they are expected to revise at home with the distractions of texts / WhatsApp / emails and whatever coming through every minute on their mobiles .

    to coin what a friend has said on another forum but re-jigged into my wording/take

    First Year/Yer 7 - your getting used to the place (so not a good one)


    3rd Year/Year 9 - 12/13 is possibly the worst age imaginable between late 0-12 age and the very first teenage year - so that eliminates that

    4th Year/Year 10 - this is generally a a Exam Prepartion year and can arguably be worse age -wise than being 12 to 13

    5th Year/Year 11 your doing the actual exams ...... which leaves the one year I purposely missed out ....... yep Year 8/2nd Year, as you have knon ppl a Year to form friendship and if your Footy-inclined that'd be formed late Year 7/first Year

    So in conclusion I agree with my friend probably 905, but a bit part of me still sways towards 3rd Year/Year 9 as it is a terrific bridge between not being that young young Sprog anymore and being an older (but also younger young Adult who is also a young Teenager) but not an old Teenager at 18/19 that i hated in a extreme manner in 1995 to 1996
