We got the cane or slipper for almost everything, Mr Ellis I think it was. He was an idiot, he used to experiment with things like caning six of you at the same time, with a really long cane. He'd make you stand in a row with your hands out in front of you, then cane you all. Of course the one nearest to him got nothing, and the one at the end got the whiplash, which hurt!

I remember one girl, not her name, but the picture of her standing on the school's stage, waiting for 'the slipper' has never left me....I don't recall why she was receiving this awful punishment, but I do know it upset all of us girls. It was unnecessary and uncalled for too...I did, for a very short time, dislike Miss Shawcross very much for carrying out this 'slipper' routine, or whatever it was called then. I don't even remember whether the girl had the slipper on her backside or her hand, but it did affect lots who witnessed it. It is one of only a couple of very unhappy memories of the time I spent at the school, and I'm not sure now whether Miss Shawcross carried out the 'slipper' punishment or another mistress did the deed......

Excellent work Pontifex, well done for all that research.

I really enjoy reading contemporary accounts of genuine corporal punishments. Some of the girls were none too happy about getting the cane or slipper , but the rest didn't seem to mind at all , regarding it as a normal part of life at school in those days. For those doubters who think girls never got caned or slippered on the behind here is proof, and just think that these accounts are a very tiny proportion of the actual corporal punishments dished out.

Alan Turing

Re: Facebook School CP References

September 10 2011, 4:05 PM 

Thank you, Pontifex, for that interesting collection. A quick perusal suggests that, of the 400 (approximately) posts, over 350 are from women, the remainder from men.

Interestingly, around 230 of the women say that they were caned, of whom 34 said explicitly that they received the punishment on the hand, and five on the bottom. Nearly 70 were slippered, of whom three said they received the punishment on the hand, and seven on the bottom. Some 25 received the strap, and 14 were spanked, ten on the legs and the remainder on the bottom.

On the other hand, 20 of the men say that they were caned, of whom three said explicitly that they received the punishment on the hand. Seventeen were slippered, of whom one said he received the punishment on the hand, and two on the bottom. Three received the strap, and two were spanked.

Other implements were used occasionally: a ruler, a bat, a boot (?).

The proportion of women among those who said they had been caned is quite remarkable, because it is as certain as anything can be that far more boys than girls were caned at school. Is the reason that more women tend to write about these experiences than men? Or is it that Pontifex is not an unbiased collector of data? Or, indeed, that some of the posts are fiction?

Note: there might be minor errors in the numbers, as it is sometimes unclear whether the description of a punishment applies to the poster, or to someone else who was thought to have been punished; or whether it is a more general "that's what this teacher had the reputation for doing" type of post. But the numbers shouldn't be too far out.

re Facebook School CP References

September 10 2011, 5:22 PM 

There may be one or two fiction but as they're gleaned from Facebook not from any fetish site I'd take them at face value. Not too different from the type of posts we used to find on "Friends Reunited".

They largely have the feel of being 1970/1980s.

Note that relatively few of the respondents feel bitter about getting CP at school, it was simply the rules of the game at the time. Also girls often got the slipper even at secondary school, and if they were caned it was often on the hand, the number of bottom canings specifically recorded is quite low.



Re: Facebook School CP References

September 10 2011, 8:41 PM 


An interesting post.

Is this a single discussion between "friends" or random postings in multiple discussions?

What was your search protocol?

Did you have to "friend" these people to see their messages?

Can you tell the likely time period when all this spanking occured, possibly from the ages?

Did any males mention getting punished?


Re: Facebook School CP References

September 10 2011, 8:49 PM 

A very good compilation, Pontifex.

I doubt many of those posts are fictitious, given the amount of details fantasists would be exposed very quickly. Alan Turing asks whether more women than men tend to write about these experiences. Some would say that women talk a lot more than men about everything - so CP experiences would be included. wink.gif

When I mentioned that a couple of teachers at my school gave us the slipper on our hands, quite a few people expressed surprise. Of 70 women who said they were slippered, Alan Turing counted 3 who said that got it on their hands and 7 who got it on their bottom. If that 3 in 10 ratio is representative, slippering hands was not all that uncommon.

Re: Facebook School CP References

KK: You ask: Did any males mention getting punished? Well, if you care to read my post in this thread of 4:05 pm today, you will discover the answer! It's not too far above your own post ... happy.gif

Jenny: There was one (male) teacher at my secondary school who slippered boys on the hands, and who, faced with a particularly serious crime, announced that the offender would be slippered on his bottom. I do think, though, that the weight of the slipper, and hence its momentum, would tend to knock the hand down, so that the impact would be reduced significantly.



Re: Facebook School CP References

September 10 2011, 9:13 PM 


I meant to inquire whether there was any intentional bias in searching for and reporting male and female school CP experiences.

Alan Turing

Re: Facebook School CP References

September 10 2011, 9:17 PM 

Actually, my observation that three women said they were slippered on the hand, and seven on the bottom, is probably unrepresentative. These were ten women out of the 70 or so who said they were slippered; but the decision to mention a particular part of the anatomy is unlikely to have been random. For instance, if it was usual for girls at your school to be slippered on the bottom then you're unlikely to mention it, unless you want to make a particular point (as one woman did) about wearing two pairs of knickers. My feeling is that this particular statistic doesn't really tell us very much.

September 10 2011, 10:31 PM 

Just to clear up some of the questions raised on this posting.

I only looked for instances of females being involved in either receiving or giving CP.

I did not have to join facebook or have a friend.

There were many instances of males being given CP by male teachers.

Most of the posts gave no indication of the period when the punishments took place. I would guess that most were between 1960 and 1980.



Re: Facebook School CP References

September 10 2011, 11:36 PM 

Hi Pontifex,

Congratulations on an excellent post which certainly seems to have stimulated some discussion. I recall you as the author of another (rather shorter) FaceBook compilation here, one of whose items set in train some epic events happy.gif in this estimable Forum! No names, no pack drill! happy.gifwink.gifhappy.gif

Clearly you are a Facebook specialist. Personally, as with Friends Reunited, I seldom visit FaceBook. Friends Reunited is annoying because it is appallingly coded, FaceBook is fairly well coded, but is both malicious and dangerous. However, one school from my own patch in your compilation has caused me to look at Facebook, where fortunately it has an open site. However you do get ludicrously nagged to join FaceBook, and every so many nags pages refuse to load and you have to use trickery to continue.

The school concerned is Broadgate, Nottingham. (Remember Broadgate, Declan? In the Park, brown uniform?) I knew the school had a reputation for CP, orthodox and sometimes unorthodox, but I've never bothered to follow it up until inspired by your compilation. There is quite a lot on FaceBook. I am puzzled as to why you've truncated Mel's entry. However I guess there is a chance that this was the item censured by 'larry1951', though I've seen worse here! happy.gif

The question has been raised above as to whether any of the items are fakes. I'm pretty sure one item on your list is a fake, or at least is copied from elsewhere. Locate (by search on the thread) Derwent School, Derbyshire:

I can recall one poor girl when we were all in assembly. Her name was called out and she had to go up on to the stage as she had done something bad. She got the cane on her bottom in front of the whole school.

Contributor unnamed.

Now consider an item from 'This is Derbyshire', the website of the Derby Evening Telegraph newspaper dated Monday, August 25 2008, which is to be found here. Scroll down a bit, 3rd paragraph after the photograph:

I can recall one poor girl when we were all in assembly. Her name was called out and she had to go up on to the stage as she had done something bad. She got the cane on her bottom in front of the whole school.

A certain resemblance, I think! happy.gif

My very esteemed fellow contributor A_Lurkologist, who has been known to claim that I am Honorary Life Member Fran of Wembley (famous for being slippered in   bottle green gym knickers   by the PE Master at Copland School, Wembley) first posted the link to the Derby Evening Telegraph item in this estimable Forum here back in September 2008.



Re: Facebook School CP References

Hi Pontifex,

You say above:

Most of the posts gave no indication of the period when the punishments took place. I would guess that most were between 1960 and 1980.

I think some would be later than that. Remember CP in Private Schools continued into the 1990s in some cases. The only school in your list that I've looked at in detail is Broadgate, as noted above. Broadgate was a private school. Taking class photographs, some of which are dated and indexed to identify those show, general chit-chat on the site and other information in the pages, I am fairly sure that the canings there extended beyond the mid 1980s.

I remember getting the cane from miss Schlecht anyway I was dead scared cause we had all heard the stories about the cane cabinet and how some teachers would jump off chairs and bring it slashing down. I was shaking like a leaf when (she must have been 65 years and 5 " tall and I was 16 year old and 6' 3" in barefeet) she sternly tapped my hand into position and brought the cane down. Well I was stunned -she probably would have used more force when inducting someone into the knighthood. So I released all the pent up tension in the form of laughter and promptly recieved three more fairy taps for insolence.

and when Mrs Crowhurst threw chalk at us and slapped my thigh when i was wearing shorts and it left a red mark.

We were terrified of Miss George. She was an extremely strict old lady. Although very frail at that time, when it came to caning the girls, she was quite energetic!

I remember one time I was in 2-1 when the entire class got cane by Haris, we all left our class room and we were running in the hallways of the wooden section of the school during class hours, I believe we were trying to miss a maths exams with Mr D' Auvergne, and no one studied that day, and in other to get into the class room we had to form a line and we each had to get 3 strokes upon entering the classroom.

That chick teacher, Ms Van der Westhuizen once moered Tony Smuts with some red rubber tubing in the science lab. I thought he was going to cry from the pain. Anybody else suffer the humiliation of that chick beating you? I think she caned some of the chicks too.
Of course us girls never got caned in high school, but I can clearly remember being hit in primary school - Hendrick Louw Strand. I got plenty there!! We had a cow of an Afrikaans teacher who would hit us on the palm with one of those government issued thick green rulers!!! The geography and history teachers (both men) would cane the girls (and boys) for failing tests. I mean proper caning - bend over and on the behind!! I'm sure they were perverts. I was also caned in science class there by a female temp teacher in front of the whole class. So you boys don't have all the dibs on being hit at school!!!

Yes, there were 4 boys and 2 of us girls that got lost. The principal said the boys were getting the strap and the girls were missing grad. I asked why we would get a different punishement than the boys, so he gave me an option. I went with the strap and enjoyed graduation.

Re: Facebook School CP References

September 12 2011, 8:22 AM 

I'm having trouble locating these references on Facebook. Odd , because I have not had any trouble before looking at , and finding things on Facebook. For instance I tried searching for Broadgate School Nottingham and it just comes up with a few irrelevant links.

AL .I do not in fact remember Broadgate School , does it still exist , again I cannot find any trace of it. It must be something very simple I'm doing wrong but cannot at the moment see what!

On the colour bottle green , there is a girl who lives nearby who goes to school in a bottle green blazer and green skirt and I am wondering which school she goes to. I am obviously not going to ask her , nor stare at her blazer to see if I can identify the badge. She is the only person round here I have seen wearing such a uniform . I suspect a good private school in the city as she gets the bus to town every day!



September 12 2011, 10:14 AM 

Broadgate School certainly is there under the name "Broadgate School Survivors- Non Nobis Domine". If you use FB search just put in the words Broadgate and Nobis.

There is a whole thread in the discussions entitled "Mr Osgerby's cane", and one respondent not mentioned above states:

"I got the cane on about 3 seperate occasions, and the day trip to sudbury too and slippered twice - wel a rather strange fiasco where mr o had my skirt round my neck just to whack my thighs with a pump!!???
and did you always have to wear brown uniform knickers and get them checked???
if it happened today "

Congratulations to Pontifex for a sterling piece of work. I have done some analysis myself (and P has actually found quite a few more than I did although he seems to be restricting mainly to secondary schools, where I've found lots at primary level. I've also found rafts in Nigeria, Uganda and the Caribbean.

Hi Yetanotheranotherlurker,

Good to see you back. It would be a great reunion if A_Lurkologist and youneedanotherlurkerlikeyouneedaholeinthehead turned up as well, but sadly the latter does make such a mess of the width of the 'Author' column! happy.gif

BTW, the Broadgate quote from 'Mel' that you give above was in Pontifex's list, but it was incomplete, as I noted here. I speculated that perhaps that was the one 'larry1951' had censured! wink.gif

Hi Declan,

Sorry I didn't respond to your query above this morning but I had to dash off. into the wilds of rural northern England, via the town where the schoolgirls wear the shortest skirts kilts in the UK. You'd love it! happy.gifwink.gifhappy.gif On a serious note, I can't understand why the school allows it. Unless the classes are segregated the senior boys must have a heck of a job concentrating on lessons.

Bottle green blazer and skirt. When I was a little lad at secondary school it was Brincliffe Grammar School for Girls, just over the wall behind the rife range and the fives court. However I think that school is long gone, as indeed are the rifle range and the fives court I believe! So that's a don't know I'm afraid.

Broadgate: I am pretty sure it is defunct now. In my articled clerk days on the fringe of The Park it was very much in evidence. It has certainly gone from the original location in The Park, that's flats now. There are 'before' and 'after' pictures on the Facebook site.

Finding the site: If you are a Facebook member then Yetanotheranotherlurker has given you a clue. But I'm not a Facebook member, so I use a different approach. If someone quotes Facebook, for instance Pontifex for Broadgate in the foundation post of this thread:

I got the cane on about 3 seperate occasions, and the day trip to sudbury too and slippered twice

I copy and paste some of the quote into Google - enough to ensure that it is probably a unique quote, but ignoring originator's name, because the position of this may not be the same as the original. In this case take say:

and the day trip to sudbury too and slippered twice

That ought to be pretty unique. Simply paste it into the Google Web search box. Ideally put a " at the beginning and end (ie embed it in double quotes). Then press the button and there you are - Mr Osgerby's cane, one of several threads on the Facebook site for the school.

For reason doubtless known unto Facebook I got the Japanese version tonight. I'm sure I didn't before. No matter though. It doesn't affect text, just page structure items such as links. These are pretty obvious anyway, but Google will offer to translate, which restores the English version I'm sure I got last time.

It is usually best to try Googling with the quote embedded in double quotes first. In this case that gets you just one link, the correct one. But sometimes the person quoting something here has accidentally altered the format. In that case Googling without the double quotes may still find the correct link, but with some garbage. In this case the format is correct, so you get 5680 results, but the correct one is at the top of the list.

BTW, you once asked how The Management here had identified something about you. I said I'd tell you later. If I'd told you at the time everybody would have been doing it but I think this is late enough! happy.gif You'd quoted something here that you'd said on another Forum. Simply Googling a fragment of it went straight to your post on that other Forum.

Back to Facebook. Once you are in a Facebook site you can navigate around whatever data is public (and sometimes, if you are very lucky, or very naughty, what isn't public). If you are a member probably best log in anyway. That presumably avoids the annoying nags about joining and occasional need to try alternative routes when after so many nags a page refuses to load, that non-members are subjected to.

For instance in this case from the Mr Osgerby's cane thread (of which there are two pages) you can get to the index of threads or the Broadgate Home Page, from where you can go to the other pages in the site.

[B]A-L and Anotheranotherlurker[/B]

Many thanks for the info about Facebook etc. I have now been able to look at the various sites. I am in fact registered with Facebook though I hardly ever use it.It is quite useful to keep in touch with some of my many cousins who I rarely if ever meet up with.

Just a couple of off topic items. I saw the bottle green blazer girl in civvies the other day. A quite remarkable change ( literally) She looked about 20. You may remember me saying that I have a school teacher friend in Aberdeen . She has now emigrated to Australia and from her Facebook photos looks like she has a dream job, living on the coast. A great distance from Doctor Dom though, and I have no idea whether her new school uses corporal punishment ( very unlikely ) and I'm not going to ask her!

Glad you've got Facebook sorted.

Are you sure the young lady in the bottle green blazer isn't a receptionist or an estate agent or something like that? They sometimes have uniforms in the posher offices.

Thanks for the bold instructions . I think I have it right this time!

The bottle green girl is definitely a schoolgirl. She wears a badge ( and now I need to know how to put a smiley face on!)
