I Caned At School

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 165 People

    I worked as a teacher in the UK from 1952

    and as a headteacher from 1967. I taught mainly in three private preparatory schools for pupils from the ages of 5 to 13 (two of them from 8 to 13). For the majority of my career, corporal punishment was liberally used in the schools in which I worked. I firmly believe that...

    Caned With Pyjamas Down At Boarding School

    I was at a school only for one term as my father was changing jobs. It was a good private boarding school, but they also made good use of the cane. I was nine at the time. At 8.00 pm we had to wash and get into our pyjamas ready to jump into bed at 8.30 at lights out, and remain...

    Caning - A few people have asked me how I caned

    when I was a headmaster. Firstly, caning was relatively rare. Most boys or girls who were sent to me for discipline would either be smacked by hand or with a plimsol or strap. The cane was reserved for the most serious offences, for example cheating or bullying. While I say...

    Being sent to the Headmaster’s Study was one

    of the worst feelings for a schoolboy. Worse still was having your name read out at the end of Assembly. One afternoon, when we were in the third form, three of us were caught by a master throwing flour bombs at the railway station. He had told us he was going to report us to...

    Caught Watching Others Caned

    At my prep school a lot of us liked to see other boys getting whacked, be it with the slipper or cane. It was especially good if you were not waiting to get it yourself. The best whackings to watch were the ones on the bare bottom where the victim had to take his pants down prior...

    I grew up as the daughter of two ex-pats in

    what Botswana in the late 60s and 70s. At that time corporal punishment was widely used, both at school and at home. By today's standards it would have been considered severe. I would be interested in chatting to others who grew up within the ex-pat community or who received...
