NEDs (Non Educated Delinquents) is the story of a young manís journey from prize-winning schoolboy to knife-carrying teenager. Struggling against the low expectations of those around him, John McGill changes from victim to avenger, scholar to NED, altar boy to glue sniffer. When he attempts to change back again, his new reality and recent past make conformity near impossible and violent self determination near inevitable.

The film starts off in 1974 with John about to enter senior school, that's six years after my senior school start but I recognise its depiction of school as a hard place populated by sarcastic teachers but tempered by having the odd teacher who actually connected with you and inspired you.
