Tuck your shirt in, sit up straight, pay attention and listen to the teacher!

If those words sent a shiver down your spine, you were probably a bit of a scamp in school.

A Linthwaite school cracked down on pupils wearing the wrong trousers as the new school year began this week - triggering anger from parents.

School was the first place where we were told off by someone other than our mums and dads - and made to follow someone else's rules.

From no talking in assembly to making sure your school tie was a perfect Windsor knot, failing to do as you were told could result in detention, writing lines - or the dreaded cane!

Luckily the cane has been outlawed from classrooms now, but that doesn't mean kids these days get away with their high jinx.
