Class Dismissed! with Tom Houghton

Class Dismissed! with Tom Houghton

By Radio X

Tom Houghton is posh…there’s no getting away from it. He lives in a posh place (the Tower of London) and he went to a very posh school. After years of privilege and a private education that cost more than most people’s houses, Tom’s decided he needs to connect with the real world and find out more about how commoners were dragged up through the education system. ‘Class Dismissed!’ is a podcast all about schools. Good schools, bad schools, bad teachers, really bad teachers and experiences that have left our guests (and Tom) needing years of therapy to correct.

EP8 Olivia Lee - Bus stop drop outs

Where did you spend most of your school time? Because according to Olivia Lee it's all happening down the bus stop.

Ouija boards, backflips and getting to second base, anything can happen when you're waiting for the 298 to Hadley Wood. We also hear from the listeners about some of the things they were dared to do, and the hideous consequences! Follow Tom - / Follow Olivia - /

EP1 Elliot Steel - Flame throwers, Asylum seekers and RuneScape

It's the first detention of the year and we fined ourselves at the back of the class in South London, where asylum seekers are sneaking into school, aerosols are being weaponised and school plays only get half way through before all hell break loose.
