Friday Five: British High School Movies

Friday Five


Continuing the back to school theme, here are my five favourite British high - well, secondary - school movies...

#5. The Hole (2001)

Four prep school students are trapped in an old nuclear fallout bunker by a sadistic classmate. Or are they? I really liked how one story keeps getting chipped away at to reveal another in this.

#4. To Sir, with Love (1967)

Sure, it's a bit of a sentimental morality play. But it does it with style.

#3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

It was the first book of the series I read and it's still my favourite. Aside from the CGI werewolf, the film is one of the strongest instalments too.

#2. Kes (1969)

As social realism it's as hard hitting now as it was 50 years ago. As a story of hope in a hopeless world it's unparalleled.

#1. St. Trinian's (1954 onwards)

The perfect slices of silly, light-hearted fun!
