Phyllis Remembers

A 1950s period piece set in a girls private school

By Jane Fairweather

They were onto their third martini at Susan’s splendid house on the edge of Wharfedale, which was the well-earned result of her clothing business, and the four women were all of them getting rather silly and talking about their school days.

“Oh tell us that story again, Phyl.” Susan suddenly demanded of her lover.

Anthea sardonically grinned at Elsie, who she knew liked this ritual less than the rest of them.

“Which story?” Phyllis asked innocently, as she always did.

“The story of our last day at school, which you always tell better than any of us you silly cow.” Susan said with love in her eyes, which had survived a good many ups and downs.

A Simple Misunderstanding

Life as an au pair in a different culture

By Julie Baker

My name is Alice Granger and I was born in Reading in April 1991. I am the eldest of four children and there is three years between each of us. I have an older brother and my two sisters are the youngest in our family. My father is an accountant in London and my mother works as a nurse in the local hospital. We are a solid middle class family with enough money to be comfortable but by no stretch of the imagination are we in any way rich. We were bought up to work hard, respect authority and do the best with whatever gifts we had been given.

Bribery never pays

A girl sees bribery as a way out of her difficulty.

by Holy Diver

On a rainy Tuesday lunchtime in November 1979, Sophie Prior was hard at work in the common room of St Anne’s academy for girls. Sophie was a senior student; short and skinny with dirty blonde hair. Unlike her friend, Hannah Anderson, who had cute freckles, Sophie was riddled with acne. At present, Sophie was desperately trying to get her homework assignment finished which should have been handed in on Monday, but was given a one day extension.

Sophie was trying to keep warm too. She was wearing a woolly jumper over her school uniform. Sophie was sat beside the window which had the heavy rain lashing against it and outside the rain was bouncing off the ground. In addition, the wind buffeted against the windows, sounding like an air raid siren. Ironically, her essay was on World War Two for her History class. Sophie found it hard to concentrate with the noise. She knew she would be in deep trouble if she failed to get this paper handed in today.

Paddled by the Principal – a new ebook

PADDLED BY THE PRINCIPAL contains three fictional stories depicting the corporal punishment of schoolgirls within American high schools:

A Model Student…?:

Stunning, but self-centred, eighteen-year-old Chrissie Caresco, now in her last semester in 12th grade, can’t wait to leave high school to pursue a career as a model. It’s no surprise, therefore, to discover that getting to her American History class on time is not one of her priorities and, having been repeatedly late to class, finds herself sent to see Assistant Principal Crompton, who has a fearsome reputation as a disciplinarian. Due to a fortunate turn of events CC manages to evade punishment, but a few weeks later she misses her first two classes, having attended an ad agency casting. This time she is not so lucky and her angry history teacher marches her off, still dressed in her short skirt for the audition, to see Mr Crompton. Unfortunately for CC the previously missed disciplinary referral comes to light and her Assistant Principal decides to administer both punishments at once, right there and then, taking a formidable wooden paddle to her scantily clad bottom.

Life’s Not Always a Giggle

Three girls play a trick on a teacher, but it doesn’t work out like they hoped.

by Andy Nixon

The three girls giggled as they finalised the details of their plan. As usual, Cortney was doing the organising.

“Summer, you bring a can of shaving foam. Erin, toilet paper, and I’ll get the condoms.”

Just the mention of the word condoms set them off again.

The plan was a plan of revenge. They had just come from a boring after-school detention where they had to write the sentence: ‘I must not talk and giggle at the back with my friends during Coach Ellis’s geography class’ a hundred times. They were mad with Coach Ellis for imposing this arduous punishment on them, and they were out to settle a score with him, get even.

Caned by the Headmaster – a new ebook

 

CANED BY THE HEADMASTER contains three fictional stories depicting the corporal punishment of sixth form schoolgirls:

The Hearing: When the Headmaster of St Andrew’s Comprehensive School discovers that four of his upper sixth form girls have been shoplifting, he decides that corporal punishment is called for. All four girls are summoned to his study and sentenced to six of the best. However, after the first three girls have been disciplined, Corinne Wright, the ringleader of the group, having witnessed her friends being reduced to tears, refuses to be caned and walks out of the Headmaster’s office, going home completely unpunished.

Offered the choice of corporal punishment or expulsion, her parents refuse to cooperate, and eventually an independent hearing is arranged to resolve the matter. As the hearing progresses it looks at first as if Corinne has won but the presiding magistrate’s decision does not go quite as the arrogant girl had hoped.

This Will Teach You a Lesson

A new deputy headmaster gets advice from the headmaster. By a new writer to us, but a long standing writer in the world of CP

by Andy Nixon

“Ah, Harborn!” Dr Benjamin said, looking up from his desk and peering at me over his half spectacles. “Sorry to interrupt your free period. Do sit down. Settling in alright are we? Any problems? No? Good.”

I wasn’t really sure whether I was expected to answer, so I just smiled.

“First week, I know, but an ideal opportunity has cropped up, don’t you see. You see, there are certain duties, as my Deputy Headmaster, that I expect you to help out with. Tricky Johnny discipline! Not much corporal punishment at your old comprehensive, shouldn’t wonder. No? Thought not! More’s the pity, I say.”

A Well Deserved Punishment

Once, student teachers were a common feature in schools, as in this period piece.

By Jane Fairweather

“Bend over, Miss Johnson, right over, if you please.”

Feeling rather ridiculous and ashamed at having to be caned at the advanced age of nineteen, Eleanor bent at the waist. She could feel her long black hair flop down the side of her left cheek as she did it and her white cotton drawers, which were quite loose on her, tightened slightly. She rather self-consciously clasped her hands together, resisting the very real temptation to put them across her buttocks. There was a slight pause. Why was Mr Jack not getting on with her punishment, which she was all too aware was very well deserved? She had behaved, she knew, in a very unladylike and sluttish way and she had not really needed the angry lecture from Mr Jack to tell her that.

Keeping Hannah on Track

The next in the series. Now the slipper comes out.

by Holy Diver

It was now moving into autumn of 1979 at St Anne’s. A month before, senior girls Hannah Anderson and Laura Chapman had a massive falling out. This had resulted in both girls receiving a severe punishment from their headmistress for fighting, following which they rekindled their failing friendship. Part of their repaired friendship now involved Hannah agreeing to undergo study sessions with her friend, the prefect Laura.

Hannah was about to sit her first major exam of that year. The subject was maths, which turned out to be her worst subject. Laura had been working hard with Hannah to make sure she was improving her maths skills.
