Praise and Punishment

Education, discipline, teaching proper behaviour, raising the elite, taming the wild. It is clear that strict traditional methods are vital to achieve these aims. So, the carrot and the stick, praise and scolding, punishment and reward are to be expected at our weekend boarding school. Our pupils already know it is mainly punishment that they are in need of.

Our punishments are the tried and tested ones of a hundred years ago. Our boys already know that their backsides are seats of learning, their ear lobes are there for pulling and twisting and standing in the corner is a good learning position. It is also inevitable that some boys will find themselves in shaming positions in front of the other boys and we suspect that certain miscreants will even go so far as to engineer this.
