does your sixth former have internet access all night at boarding school? Or do they block it?

Nope, it's turned off at night. Doesn't stop them using 3G though.

I know someone who's son has flunked his A levels, then his repeats and is now in a treatment programme for gaming addiction.
His boarding school didn't turn off the wifi, when they eventually did he was too far gone and I believe used a 3g card to continue. Supervision was terrible and they eventually made him a day boy.
