Quantock School Language & Colloquialisms

No, when mentioning language at Quantock I am not talking about Mrs Down's French lessons...

During our years spent at Quantock School, one very often came across phrases, expressions or activities that were almost uniquely Quantockian. While some of these sayings were confined to a particular year, a good number of them were probably as old as the school itself. Well, maybe I am exaggerating a little bit. What is beyond debate is that there are some terms that one would never have heard before going to Quantock - and never heard again after passing through those famous gates for the last time.

Listed here is a small collection of Quantock School terms, tricks and phrases - of course, if any of you other ex-Quantockians out there can remember any more, please do drop us a line and let us know!

"Stop dossing about or you'll have DT instead of a double dot this afternoon..."
