I have posted quite a few images from the excellent 39 minute Sting Pictures download “Approved Education 2”, however, here are some high definition photographs taken during the original filming. I don’t think any have been posted previously.
Approved Education 2 was one of Sting’s earlier downloads, and one which I have watched quite a few times, but, however many times you view it. there is certainly no danger of ever finding it boring. All the boys give excellent performances, and the quality is everything we’ve come to expect from Sting.
Here is the description from the Sting Website:
Approved schools in Britain first appeared in 1933. Unlike Borstal they were usually open institutions and young offenders sent to them would receive academic tuition as well as work activities. Styled like a school the uniform was usually plain grey. Many approved schools were known for their strict discipline culminating in the famous Court Lees affair in the 1960’s where excessive discipline with the cane was cited.
In this short feature we go back to those days of discipline and get an inside view of life at Court Leamington where the slipper, strap, tawes, cane and spanking echo round the walls. Featuring five strapping Sting lads including Brett, Stefanel, Brad, David and Barry the action is hot and the result is another retro classic for your collection.
