Monday 14 October 2013
When you are struggling at school it’s easy to become disheartened, to feel you don’t ‘fit in’ or will never amount to much.
Well banish those thoughts right now. As these school reports show, everybody was a student once and more than a few were at the mercy of teachers who didn’t realise the talent of their young charges.
As part of our Back To School campaign we’re encouraging people to return to their old schools and speak to students about what they wish they’d known at that age. You can sign up here.
In the meantime, flick through these school reports and know that whatever your background or how you did at school, it’s still possible to be a success.
