Approved Education Part 9 – featuring Leonardo King, Brad, Daniel Fliesh, Marco and introducing Kenny White
The daily administration of discipline continues unabated at Bishopsfield Institution, a government Approved Educational and reformatory establishment. The young lads inside need constant guidance and good results aren’t expected but demanded in their retraining.
In the latest episode of bad behaviour two lads, Hutchinson (Daniel Friesh) and Phillips (New Stinglad Kenny White) are both up in front of the Headmaster for fighting. Although mates they often seem to fall out over nothing.
This time however enough is enough and both receive simultaneous spankings from the Headmaster and Housemaster together.
Now with both boys furiously rubbing their throbbing bare bottoms they are left in the care of their Housemaster (Marco) for further guidance! This comes in the form of an old thick brown leather belt.
Being friends and bending over side by side doesn’t really take the sting out of the thrashing. The Housemaster is determined to make an impression and so he does.
The belt cracks down mercilessly on the lads already inflamed bare bottoms. The stinging bands of fire leave the pair in no doubt they must behave in future!

Historical Note: Approved School is a term formerly used in the United Kingdom for a residential institution to which young people could be sent by a court, usually for committing offences, but sometimes when they were deemed to be “beyond parental control”. To some extent they were similar to a reform school in the United States.
Running from 1933 until 1969, when they were replaced by the far less strict Community Homes, Approved Schools were modelled on ordinary boarding schools, from which it was relatively easy to abscond. This set them apart from borstals which were a tougher and more enclosed kind of youth prison.
