Before claiming international stardom, John Lennon was just like any ordinary high school kid who gets in trouble every now and then. In fact, there is written evidence to prove it.
A pair of detention sheets, which reveal his misdemeanours when he was just a 15-year-old kid, will be auctioned.
The documents reveal the future Beatle’s antics at Quarry Bank High School for Boys in Liverpool where he was known as the ‘class clown’.
The Imagine singer was punished for fighting in class, for being a nuisance, for not showing interest, and for ‘sabotaging’ lessons.
The documents also reveal that the singer, songwriter and rhythm guitarist from the famous band the Beatles found a way to receive three detentions in just one day.
Peter Beech, Lennon’s general science teacher at the time, said: “The sheet is typical of John Lennon, he was an extremely cheeky boy. He did, however, know his limits. In the classroom, if you settled John down, you generally settled the class down.
“His chemistry teacher Eric Oldman said that John could actually go far.”
The detention sheets are estimated to fetch between £2,000 and £3,000.
