Non of our boys were cool.
Ross and Owen in the year below were hot!
Nicola was the nearest we got to a cool girl.
Some pretty popular Steve's higher up the school, our years were dull.
4 Susans no cool ones.
Yes and a pretty cool Dean in with popular Steves.

Wayne is likely to have teachers running for the hills, they have an awful reputation for being trouble.

I'm not so sure about the lads cause there was such a huge and diverse group of them.

The girls that a lot looked upto were Angela and Alexis (completely outing myself with those names!)

All the 'cool' kids' names when we were at school are, by definition, going to be names used a lot in the 70s and 80s - Mike, Steve, Paul, Sarah, Karen, etc. In addition there was a very cool, good looking Thor in my year!
