How Jessie Buckley went from Kerry to the West End 


This is a photo of a young John Lennon with his mother, Julia.

It seems he wasn’t exactly a model pupil.

“A pair of detention sheets which reveal the schoolboy misdemeanours of a 15-year-old John Lennon are to go on sale, revealing his “extremely cheeky” side.

The documents uncover his antics at Quarry Bank High School for Boys in Liverpool where he was renowned as a ”class clown”.

Reasons for punishment given by his teachers include ”sabotage”, ”fighting in class”, ”nuisance”, ”shoving” and ”just no interest whatsoever”.

On two occasions the Beatle even managed to receive three detentions in one day.

The sheets cover the periods when he was in Class 3B between May 19 and June 23 1955, and in Class 4C from November 25 1955 to February 13, 1956. His surname is written by a teacher on the top left corner of each page.”     (Mark Little on Twitter)
