3 years ago when I started high school we had to pay a £20 deposit on a locker and lock. No problems there, but on leaving day we had to clear out our lockers and leave them. Yet the school won't be giving anyone back their £20 'deposit' contrary to what they said back when we paid it. Now there are roughly 370 people in my year group (at least), 20 multiplied by 370 gives you 7400, so my school has pocketed £7400 in total (maybe more depending on the exact number of people in my year).

Do you have any documents from when you paid the £20 assuring you that you would get it back?

That's pretty out of order. Most people cave if you threaten legal action, get your parents to ring the school?
#3
At my school it wasn't ever a deposit.

Like Mistress_Ibanez said, do you have any proof that you were meant to get the money back?

I'll have a look later for any documents, my mum keeps that sort of thing filed. Also pretty much everyone in my year was told on paying the money that it would be returned.

That's out of line. I hope you find those documents and get your money back.

My school robbed me of taking 9 GCSEs.

I'd rather have lost £20.




EDIT: Wait.. You didn't take your GCSEs?

Quote by ChucklesMginty
Long story short I got a long-term illness that my school didn't take seriously, so they didn't get me the help I needed to complete my coursework. They then told my I couldn't take any of my GCSEs that required coursework, because I hadn't done most of it. Which was all of them apart from Maths, so that's my only GCSE. :L

I hate British education.


Ouch, just a random guess but did you have ME??

Schools never give a shit about you being ill.

I was off for two weeks with meningitis (a different type to the one that kills mind, but still complete agony, and since that, I've been more able to use my left hand and I like pineapple...so it kinda screwed with my head) and when I got back my science teacher asked for my homework.

Did you make a formal complaint to the local government?

The trouble is the locker is one of those joined ones, like a semi-detached locker really, so I'd be dragging off 2 other lockers.

I still do in fact, I think it's become a common thing. But it's also become a common thing to fake it (I guess it's fairly easy to fake...) So the school's and exam boards don't want to know.

I think I've hijacked this thread a bit.

TS, steal from your school.


I will be soon.


Sorry to hear that, a guy in my tutor class had it and missed like 7 months, luckily it was in year 9 so he didn't miss anything too crucial. My school didn't get too difficult about it though, probably because the guy could barely wipe his arse or feed himself.

But then that prevents you from breaking into their lockers and filling it full of stuff, so that when they open them at their home, they have such a crazy mess to tidy up, or they'll get grounded.

Take £20 worth of stuff from the school. Get as many people as you can to do it as well. Make it obvious you're doing it. The school will cave in pretty quickly.

Do you have a contact to state the deposit was refundable?

^This. My school called it a "locker rental fee" and charged I think it was like $8 a year. Then, when your locker broke because the school was cheap and skimped on maintenance, they tried to charge you to fix it. They told me that I wouldnt be able to pass to the next year without paying it, I told them that they do that, they get fired for holding a student back over something that has nothing to do with academic grades. They dropped that argument pretty quickly.

sorry dude but i found that amusing. Well to TS, it's really only $20 and i'm sure that money is going to the school, i doubt all the staff split it up equally

And since they are now your property, you are free to do whatever you want with them, i.e. take a shit in them and stink up the hall way until you get your deposit back.

That's 2 threads in 2 days where I suggested TS solve his problem by taking a shit. I feel accomplished.

That should get the point across.
