“He was an extremely cheeky boy.”

Science teacher Peter Beech on the young John Lennon. Records from Quarry Bank High School for Boys in Liverpool show the 15-year-old class clown (who twice managed to get three detentions in one day) was punished for “sabotage,” “fighting in class,” “nuisance,” “shoving” and “just no interest whatsoever,” reports the Independent. Fortunately, things worked out for the future Beatle; two detention sheets are estimated to bring $3,000 to $4,500 at auction.
