Are there differences in the bullying experiences of girls and boys?

In 2000, pupils from 120 schools in Northern Ireland were asked about bullying. At primary school level girls were more likely to be bullied by another girl in the same class, while it was more common for boys to be bullied by an older boy. At secondary school level it was still more likely for girls to be bullied by a female classmate, and boys were usually bullied by other boys. It was also found that at primary and secondary school level, boys were more likely than girls to be bullied and to bully others.
