The Brunts School - Mansfield, Notts. But it's an academy now, all the secondary schools in my area seem to be.

> 2 breaks assuming the minimum is 15 mins altho probably longer
> 38 teaching weeks in the UK
> 30 minutes per day x 5 days = 150 mins per week
> 150 x 38 = 5700 minutes
> 5700/ 60 = 95 hours
> assuming 8 hour school day
> 95/8 = 11.8 ~ 12
> brits miss 12 school days per year
> after elementary/primary school, brits miss 84 school days
> Those dumasses miss what culminates to about half a school year on breaks

******* lies. I'm in senior (High) school, and we get a 15 minute break after 2nd lesson, and a 50 minute lunch break. :[[[
User avatar #37 to #36 - postie (04/29/2013) [-]
That's decent, we only get two 20 minute breaks at my school, thankfully i leave soon.
User avatar #38 to #37 - dickbewt (04/29/2013) [-]
20 minutes for a lunch break?
User avatar #39 to #38 - postie (04/29/2013) [-]
Yeah, might be 25 minutes, but it's not long.
User avatar #40 to #39 - dickbewt (04/29/2013) [-]
******* hell, that's short :P Are you leaving as in moving schools, or for study leave?
User avatar #41 to #40 - postie (04/29/2013) [-]
I don't think we get study leave, they've never mentioned it, but hopefully we will.
User avatar #42 to #41 - dickbewt (04/29/2013) [-]
You have to get it by law :P And what school do you go to, if you don't mind me asking?
User avatar #43 to #42 - postie (04/29/2013) [-]
St. Peters, you?

Well at least I can have study leave, but they'll probably change it so we have more English lessons or something.

User avatar #116 to #29 - kookiefrankus (05/29/2013) [-]
Just enough time to grab a sandwich out, eat it, take a piss then the bell rings and you go to your next two periods/class. That's all I got for an explanation

My secondary school, and others in the surrounding area i'm sure, only had one break and one lunch.
I guess different parts of the country do different things.
