I saw the comment about having an unpleasant time at Ravenswood too. I had a mostly alright time at Ravenswood, I liked it better than the school before it. But then I had an awful time for the first 2 years at the school I went to after Ravenswood. Luckily I pulled myself up by my own bootstraps in the 3rd year and enjoy the 4th and 5th years. But I have never fully escaped the lasting negative effects of those first 2 years, and I'm nearly 50 now.

The HM at Ravenswood, Mr. Whitaker, was sometimes drunk and would 'slap' pupils in the face but with the front of his closed fist. I'm not surprised if some people take exception to things like that!

So I don't have lingering bad feelings about Ravenswood, but the same doesn't apply to the school after it, though it was no worse.
