Where does bullying take place?

When in 1989, children from 10 Scottish secondary schools were asked about bullying, 44% of those who had been bullied recently said that the most common place was the playground. 28% thought the classroom was the most common place. Fewer children stated that it happened travelling to and from school (particularly younger children and those travelling on the school bus), in the corridors and toilets and outside school.
