Bullying was an issue that was raised by many children. Charlotte, who moved to Jersey when she was 14, described how she and her friends, who included her sister, were considered different at school.
I’m pretty sure we were looked at as the… ‘weird’ group, if there were cliques in school, we were definitely the weird group… I’ve had, em… very judgy moments with, em, girls who’ve gone to my school just because I felt they were so ingenuine… we really were the weird group. People either called us the weird group, not to our faces, that was behind our backs, or it was the ‘intelligent but odd’ group or something like that.
