It was also further rumoured that a former pupil at the school had gotten into the passageway and confirmed that it did indeed lead all the way into town.


I think we went to the same school, or at least we did after they merged. The rumour at my primary school, which used to be an old manor house, was the tunnel lead from behind the fireplace in the main entrance to the chapel. The original owners of the house actually paid for the construction of the chapel.

Same school - it was rumoured to be haunted by the grey lady. On the spiral staircase was supposedly her portrait and its eyes would follow you when you walked up and down the stairs. I used to dread be sent on errands during class and would take the long way round to avoid that staircase.

In our secondary school there was a rumour our French teacher (who was French) used to be a stripper as well as a nude model. That one turned out to be true.

That's a distinct possibility, what year did you finish school?

I left in 1997.

You really wouldn't want to see any. I never said she was actually cut out for the job :dread:

Standard rumours at high school about three of the teachers being the dodgy sort and inappropriate with 15, 16 and 17 year olds. Unfortunately, one was told to quit before he was sacked and did so (aged 13, we found it hilarious that he had a boner while teaching our maths class :dread: ), one worked until retirement (including offering my now fiancé "private evening tutoring" when she was 16), and the third was sacked, in the local newspaper, is now on the sex offenders register, can't work with kids, and is in a long-term relationship with a girl from my GCSE History class.

My Year 8 English teacher was a pervert. He was eventually sacked, and wound up in the paper after we'd left.

I suspect the high oddball density in Hampshire is down to the New Forest emitting some kind of weirdo-radiation. Strange bunch down that way.

( ;) @ anyone here from the New Forest...)

Apologies for DM link, but this was one of my teachers at school. This story is 10 years after I left though so it wasn’t my years fault. ;)

I think he died not long after that story broke.

Yeah my school was in the Hampshire district - dodgy lot. I went to college in Brockenhurst where the New Forest radiation is extremely local. Some oddballs there.

This one isnt an urban legend, it actually happened. I went to a catholic primary school, the principal was a nun, we had weekely hymn lessons with another nun, the school was built on the ground of the old convent, all that type of stuff. Mine was the last class to have the principal teach us before she retired and went to do nun stuff full time, she was a battleaxe of a woman, insisted on kids going to mass every week, got in trouble if you didnt, would treat the religious kids better than the rest. She even still had a cane she would smack on the desk since she wasnt allowed smack the kids with it anymore but every now and again your finger might get caught if you werent careful, she was a proper old school nun.

Went on to secondary school anyway, moved away from that area, generally got on with life until about 10 years later I was having a chat with my parents about the good old days and my mother informed me what became of her. A few years after she retired she met a man and fell in love with him so she left the nuns and eloped with him. This led to her telling me what happened to the original priest that was attached to the school, we got a new one about halfway through my time there even though the one we had was pretty young. Turns out the original fella had done the same thign as the old nun, met a woman, fell in love and left the priesthood. When you do the numbers it means 25% of the clergy attached to the school took lovers and eloped it in a 10 year period. :lol:
