Expelled

Anything that doesn't fit anywhere else, but that's still CH related.

So it seems we added an 'S' to it, in much the same way that the ignorant and the mentally challenged insist on calling their local supermarket Tesco's. Mind you, I could swear I once saw it marked on an old OS map with the caption 'Eastlands Copse'. I could also swear that some pupils in my own day erroneously referred to it as East Lamb Copse. Sadly, we'll always have to share the planet with numpties.

It is rare that I rise to such bait, but first of all, people calling their local supermarket 'Tesco's' probably do so verbally, so the apostrophe is not spoken but inferred, and secondly, presumably the meaning is 'the supermarket of Tesco', so it is 'Tesco's [supermarket]'. Quite why such disparaging language emanates from you on the point is rather hard to understand. People say it because people say it, that is how language works and it presumably works in their respective heads as sounding right.

Coming back OT, I think that in my time, there might have been 1 or 2 expulsions from CH. There was, AIUI, a rustication of a Dep. (IIRC) after a serious indecent assault by pupil on pupil(s) round about 1980-1981. I can't recall any particular expulsions, more likely those too challenging for the School seemed to leave presumably at an agreed point after discussions with parents and some less academically-gifted left after 'O'-level.

It was not unknown for some older pupils to have notches in the belt to indicate the number of cane strokes received. I remember one bloke who c. 1981 had a belt that looked like a saw blade.

I think pupil expulsion is treated by The School as a fire-bucket, sand and ostrich syndrome, Looks far better for The School as well !

A bit like when school staff are caught being a bit naughty with the pupils !!!!!

He also came back from a summer CCF camp at Shorncliffe, Kent in the late 1950s with a huge anti-tank two-man bazooka (but no ammo!!!) which was surplus to requirements there. We trundled it out on CCF afternoons after we got bored with dismantling the Bren guns.
Was that the MOBAT (mobile anti tank weapon) which appeared one day which had to be towed by a vehicle. Sighted in with a Bren attached alongside the barrel? I remember a couple of Stirlings appearing at the same time but we were not allowed to "test" them.

Dismantling the brens? I remember on the range one day being allowed to fire a few rounds on automatic

'Education Facility' !!! Who invents this gobbledygook? Perhaps we should rewrite the first line of the Wikipedia article: Christ's Hospital, known colloquially as 'the Bluecoat Education Facility'...

Was Jason Flemyng, the actor, expelled? I seem to recall also that he was involved in a shop lifting episode when he was in Mid A?

He was expelled from the Labour Party. Don't know about CH.

I seem to remember several pupils being ‘asked to leave’ and moved to KES Whitley, which I assume is linked to CH in some way. I don’t know why KES would have been keen to take pupils who didn’t meet CH’s standards of behaviour, but apparently they were. I also don’t know whether staff ever moved between the two.

Just for my education, is there a difference between expelled and excluded?

In my day, if you refused to be excluded, you were expelled. Excluded sound better. Withdrawn even more so...

I wonder who paid for them to go there as I thought KES Witley didn’t offer as many assisted places as CH.

A depressingly similar tale from KES Witley

That's the first time I've ever heard of KES taking excluded CH pupils. I will refrain from adding my thoughts on a pattern of staff behaviour emerging.
