I think once we got further up the school there was more interaction especially in the Sixth form, I was quite friendly with a couple of 7's and Ailsa and Carol in 3's.

If you go to the Index it will come up with an orange marker.

It was the same at Horsham more or less. You only really interacted socially with people from other houses if you were in sports teams, band, choir etc or the same academic sets.

I guess if you were a smoker (which I wasn't) you might mingle in the various haunts.

Well thats a good thing

I suppose they still "intermingle" at the bird sanc, by the railway line by Peele A, in the bushes by the music school, behind the cricket pavilion, down the tube if it's raining...

Indeed... but not really down the Tube anymore... it's all 'locked' up - not that that stops some people...

That's a shame

We used to have fun exploring down there - once found myself under the heating grates in the chapel during a service

Lucky I wasn't smoking that time!!!

Oh I don't know, curls of smoke wafting upwards - could have been interesting!!

Interesting...

If I'd been caught smoking down there in my day it would have meant a rather nasty caning session

Not fun

Back onto topic again..

I used to get into legendary amounts of trouble... Most weeks, I had so many school drills, that these converted into Double Saturday Detentions. I got busted smoking and drinking so many times that they ran out of punishments...

I got the cane once.. Plus many many Sundays of Mr Grimshaw's hard labour, which basically consisted of shifting huge piles of logs from one side of a field, then back again

Quadruple drills and detentions were the norm for me... Most weekends, in the end I just didn't bother showing up, because I'd rather get drunk or go out on a Saturday so they rolled over and over!!

I ended up getting "asked to leave" on my GE which was the best thing that ever happened to me.. I pretty much hated C.H. for the most part... In my day bullying was rife and it wasn't a wholly pleasant place to be... I just didn't care about getting caught towards the end, so much so that I used to smoke cigarettes openly on the ave when it was dark... Ironically I never once got busted for doing this.. ;)

And squatted Boomer's caravan for a couple of months. Until he caught me.

I do tow the line these days!!!! Kind of.

Interesting !

I note that you are in your 30's.

EXACTLY when was corporal punishment dis-continued at CH ?

I speak as an interested party, having been slippered on numerous occasions in Prep and caned three times in Coleridge B.

Incidently, I know that C.M.E. Seaamen, (Headmaster), beat pupils on certain occasions, but it was described to me as... 'a mild tingle on the bottom !'
