I have a feeling that what you say is just an illusion.
Forty years ago I have similar memories of bullying getting less as we went through the school, and being nearly non existent when we left. I have a feeling we just didn't notice any more!

We used to have to have our hair cut by the barber behind the tuck shop; big guy with a wooden leg. No choice of cut of course, just short back and sides and out the door. John Rutley must remember.

I used to live near Guildford, and one of my fondest memories is travelling home at the end of one summer term. It was a little steam train puffing slowly along.
