    That's a mad contrast to my school. Teachers would instill the work ethic and push us. For example, when I said I went to Oxford, it was because I went to a philosophy conference there as the teacher put me on a 'gifted and talented' list which was designed to push us. So I went to a few similar events too. Likewise, there were competitions in between schools to do with academics. For example I did some in maths and economics at sixth form. Likewise, there were opportunities for younger pupils to be mentored by older ones and vice versa and I engaged in it both ways.

    With uni, I got one less grade than expected at A level. So I went to my teacher and she was like "you are capable of the AAA universities, do it" and come the following summer, I made it. I was told to do 2/3 out of 5 universities with higher grades than I got and I was in regular contact with my teachers with applications and academics. My maths teacher nagged me to do maths and I was like "Is economics good enough, sir?" :hehe:.

    I feel that if I didn't go to the grammar school and university, a lot of potential would be lost as looking back, I grew intellectually thanks to very talented and passionate teachers. Also around a handful went to Oxbridge, it is very competitive for these universities but our school had support for those applying.

    He grafted for it, did the hard yards for years until he got the money together to buy some land and build a few bungalows, after that his business just grew and grew, retired at 50, life of Riley.

    I wish I had the opportunity to go to grammar school, do A levels and university from school.

    I was a straight A student throughout comprehensive school but was not even offered the choice to go on to do A levels in 6th form, as numbers were limited to those who came from the ‘right’ families. I didn’t. The only option of further education was Barry college. That lasted 6 months until I realised that it was complete shit and wouldn’t help me get a job. So I joined the army and gained vocational qualifications the hard way and finally managed to pay to go to uni aged 32. Came away with a first-class honours aged 35 and started my masters aged 39.

    White privilege eh?!

    Not if he was smashing a bird upstairs in the Wynford you wouldn't. It's technically a hotel. So you'd have to open the door and show him to his room. Then clean up in the morning. Technically.
