Prologue

Whenever I spoke to my friends back at home about St Martinas University, I was always met with a mixture of shock and wonder. I would tell them about the wood-panelled rooms and the long corridors hung with paintings. I'd tell them about the tall, imposing stone buildings and the formal arrangements of the dorms and the common rooms. And I'd tell them about the strict discipline at the college - one of the last in England to still use the cane.

"I hear they do it in front of the whole school," said Janie, my old friend from home, during one phone call. "And that you have to strip naked."

"They don't strip anyone naked," I said. "Only down to underwear. But yeah, for the big things it is in front of the whole school. It's a deterrent. To make sure people don't misbehave."
