Where does bullying take place?

Over 2,000 pupils (aged 10 - 14 years) took part in a survey of bullying in England in 1997. The answers of those who had been bullied revealed that the most common place for bullying to occur was the playground (65%). It was only slightly less common to be bullied in the classroom. 37% had been bullied in the corridors or hallways. Areas mentioned less often include: toilets, changing rooms, out of lesson time clubs, gymnasia and behind the school building.
