Slaughter High

Trivia: As the directors wanted a well-known actor to play the one adult character (the coach), they initially approached Peter Lawford for the role, but were not able to get him as he wanted $35,000 and a free shopping trip in Harrods, when the most the directors were willing to offer him was $25,000. In the end, one director (Dick Randall) got his friend Marc Smith to play the part for a mere $750.

Trivia: The school scenes of the film were indeed filmed in a real school, not a movie set - they were filmed at St Marylebone Grammar School for boys in London. However, the shots of the school from the outside are actually shots of Holloway Sanatorium, near Virginia Water.
