17 Obvious Signs You Went To A Secondary School In Britain

We can all agree that we hated secondary school at the time – it was too stressful trying to fit in, keep up with work and sleep all whilst maintaining a good social life. But, looking back we can all agree that those were the best years of our lives (so far). We would honestly give anything to go back and relive those wonder years and appreciate them for how good they truly were.

But, there were some downfalls of going to high school in Britain – MyMaths and permanent temporary buildings that hosted no radiators and crap carpet (just to name a few).

Whilst we spent our days there complaining, there were still some memories that we will never forget. Here are 17 signs that you went to a British High School!

1. MyMaths

We all dreaded getting homework every single maths lesson, but if you were going to be forced to spend your evenings doing this then MyMaths was definitely the best homework you could have been set…

We used the typical excuse that we forgot to press ‘submit’ after we had done all the work. Every single teacher must have caught on to this…

2. Temporary Buildings

These buildings were classed as ‘temporary’ and they were positioned outside the main building at school.

However, they were there longer than we were. Not only this, but they were FREEZING cold because no heating was connected to them and the carpet was always so minging.

3. Dream Matte Mousse

Every single teenage girl had this. No make-up collection was complete without this as an addition.

The only correct way to wear this was to have it three shades darker than your actual skin tone and make sure you had very prominent slag lines.

4. Knuckles

You used to play the most ridiculous games when it was raining outside. There was nothing more stupid than ‘knuckles’.

You would slide a coin at full pelt across a desk and see if you could cut your friends knuckles.
