Getting Around School
Elliot Reed: You’d Need a Map
Elliot was born in 1969 in Surrey. He lived with his family in Oxted and attended his local primary and secondary mainstream schools, also attending a private school for a few years in between. He went on to attend a Youth Training Scheme after school.
Here Elliot describes getting around his large school.
I mean with a school like that they need to give you a map, I mean it’s so big, that’s why I was late ‘cause I didn’t know where all the classes were and I think I was about ten or fifteen minutes late all the time.
