A TEENAGER who robbed a convenience store at knifepoint was caught after boasting about it to his school pals, a court heard.

The boy, aged 15, went into Martin’s, in Hunwicke Road, Colchester, before school and demanded cash from the male cashier.

He got £30, then demanded a packet of Hamlet cigars and a lighter.

Teachers at his school questioned him about the incident after his friends were heard talking about it.

Charles Lucas has produced some outstanding results actually in its time and many pupils have gone on to good and great things. Its the uneducated and shortsighted people in this Town that betray it as a bad School. There are unachievers in all Schools, perhaps your upset because your one of them!!

Your, do you mean you're. Sounds like you went to Charlie Lu. It is a bad school. Having had friends that taught there, it's a place of 70% wrong 'uns.
The 30% are great though :)
