    We had plenty of bullies; I don't recall deaths or drugs. We did have an arsonist. He set fire to the library store room. And we had cruel teachers - two of the games masters.

    In a way it was really rough like Grange Hill, I think Onthebusescrazy though we could get a way with about as much as GH Students did on any given day I guess . Though my 2nd Secondary School was no-where near like it.

    No not at all. Mainly because my school was real and Grange Hill is a work of fiction.
    Heaven knows I'm miserable now.

    We could get away with certain thing's - which made my first Secoindary School like Grange Hill, but we had to be careful what it was, and when etc. Like wearing our Ties thin side only, but to me the thing's characters in Grange Hill got away with - being funny and cheeky etc without any real malice like Waterloo Road has very very often at times, was what made GH special I think

    my school,was like grange hill in that it existed in the 70's and 80's. none of the characters in grange hill had any fear about them not like some of the people in my school.

    Also, how sexist was Grange Hill, every competition was won by the girls be it cooking, hockey, football etc, yet in my school we beat the girls at everything except pregnancies.
