Went to a "Prep" school before that - now that WAS a nightmare - Dickens would have recognised it.
Savage bullying, sodomy, rotting food, cold (ice on the washbasins in the morning), brutal beatings.
Mockney was fashionable, along with casual vandalism of anything vandalisable.

Never learned anything much, apart from a degree of low cunning and how to lie successfully
