    I'd have liked that. I could never get up early, was always being late for school. He might be right. He's the bloke who got students to pass GCSE's in two weeks study by letting them juggle in between bouts of intensive study

    If teenagers started at 11, it would just make them stay up even LATER the night before, so that they would whine about their SPECIAL BODYCLOCKS not being fully activated till 1pm.

    I went to Monkseaton High which was the School centre of the news report this evening Lol.

    A fair point was made later which someone stated how would kids ever get themselves into a routine for a normal 9-5 job when they leave school if all they've been used to an 11am start.

    Then come 16 you start working as an apprentice with some hairy arsed builder that starts at 7/8 o'clcock in the morning (for example), hows little Freddy going to cope in the real world when the lazy little cunts had it easy for the remaining years of his high school life?

    ...Tell the company that he perfoms better in the afternoon maybe? bollox.

    no you didnt :confused:

    Why go to the docs thinking you had a problem, you wre just lazy - like all 12-17 year olds, I was guilty of it and my 3 brothers were the same, albeit they were a lot lazier, its just being a teenager.

    Having them start at 11am is not going to work, they will just go to bed later and then be complaining at getting up at 11am!!!

    In Cyprus (my home :lol: ) they are at school at 7am and finish at 1pm and it doesnt harm them!

    Why go to the doctors? - I was always tired and couldnt get up

    I hate lying in and pre pubity I didnt and post pubity I didnt

    It makes perfect sense your bodys FUCKED during those few years, cant you see that? yeah you can get up early but your not going to be 100% and at school it helps to be 100% does it not?

    Your a typical parent, "It didnt do me any harm" - "Get up you lazy sod"

    Poor little Ronaldo I pity the wee man

    :lol: he looks more like that kid off coronation street than he does ronaldo!

    I hated lying in too but its laziness and nothing more!!

    When I was pregnant I was really tired on a morning even if i went to bed at 8pm the night before, I couldnt just NOT go into work until 11am becuase my brain worked best then could I, and the body changes alot more through pregnancy than it does pubity!!!

    why doesnt he have PE or something at the beginning of the day, that will wake them up!

    ...(FOR EXAMPLE) :dunce::dunce: it would be the same principle in ANY job.

    You could defend this Headmasters point if the whole School were underperforming in their GCSE's, but year in year (and for all the years before this) some walk away with straight A's. An 11am start may affect the ones that can actually take things in a lot easier in the morning... every teenage kids body clock is different. He's basically wanting to alter the whole School curiculum to cater for the lazy fuckers...

    Just a stab in the dark... but you seemed to be like every other Teenage boy at School - a lazy cunt, stayed up too late pulling the head off it & couldn't peel yourself out of bed in the morning. I cant believe you went to the Doctors for it HaHaHaHa :lol:

    I'd rather have had school hours like that than ours. Plenty of time for a kick about on a night, specially in the winter!

    He had the kids studying in 15 minutes, break for 15 then study again, apparently the teenage brain stops absorbing information after 15 minutes.

    i think it was 15 anyway, might of been 30
