School Council: Sixth former Emily is an exemplary student on the School Council, but finds herself in a tricky situation following an incident at a hockey match. At the latest Friday meeting of the School Council, it is her punishment that is discussed. The outcome is agreed, and she learns she is to be caned. She asks for her punishment to be delivered that afternoon, saying that would be better than waiting until Monday and agonising about it during the weekend. The headmaster agrees to carry out the punishment himself, and delivers six of the very best. But there are other things going on that the headmaster knows nothing about...
Knock on the Door: Lisa has a reputation for being the naughtiest girl in the school. In trouble again, she asks her older sister's friend, Andrea, for advice about what to expect. As Andrea goes through the details of possible punishments, the potential outcomes increase in intensity as Lisa admits the full extent of what she's done. With a sickening feeling, she fears the worst... the cane.
Smacks of Justice: Lucy settles down to life at her new school... a school which upholds firm standards of discipline. Her classmates tell her about the headmaster's 'induction spanking' and how ineffectual it is as opposed to the usual strap to the hands. Before too long, Lucy misbehaves in class and is sent to the headmaster's office. Expecting a few light slaps, she instead learns a lesson of pain and humiliation, resulting in a very red and sore bottom.
Forewarned: Lisa is called to the headmaster's office. For once, she's not in trouble, but she is the first student to learn that after half term a trip to the head's office may result in a very sore bottom. Following concerns about pupil behaviour, the school governors have decided that misbehaving pupils may be given the strap, or even the cane. Lisa is very nervous about her future!
The Deputy Headmistress: The strict deputy headmistress of a coed grammar school chronicles the challenging decisions she must make on a daily basis. She details the events of one week, as they relate to corporal punishment of the girls at the school. Punishments involving caning predominate as she explains the circumstances and follow-through of her actions with several misbehaving pupils.
TV Documentary: This documentary describes the decision of a private girls' school to implement corporal punishment by bringing back the strap and the cane. It reports on the debate that parents and students engaged in prior to the implementation of the new policy, and their feelings now, a year after the implementation. A few of the punishments given during that first year are described, along with how they were earned.
