Did my P.E. lesson once at school and couldn't understand why everyone kept looking at me. When the lesson ended I went to take my shorts off to find I hadn't put them on. I'd done the whole lesson in my Y-fronts, and they were bright red as well!

Would you believe a Convent? Not an autobiographical choice here, just a great song from two smart blokes.

Val H. says:
Here's the first verse:

If I brought a note to school
That said my days were numbered
They'd leave me
Numb and bleeding
Or strangle me with jump-leads
Momma, momma, momma,
In my world
The birds don't sing
The bells don't ring
The bicycle bells, the bicycle bells
Momma, momma, momma, Help me!
I wish I could blend
Into the background
I've no excuses for my lack of guts
Lack of guts
What is it about me
That draws attention?
Fourth form atrocities
Punchbag

EDIT: Sorry, I've just read the O/P and obviously you want the title to reflect school in some way. Give us a sec and I'll change my nom.

If Val can't have Punchbag, then aren't Smoking and Chalk Dust similarly ruled out?

Hi Sussex,
OP says 'a song title with ANYTHING to do with school in it'

according to wiki;
"Smokin' in the BOY'S ROOM" is about students hoping to avoid being caught violating
their school's smoking ban by smoking cigarettes in the boys restroom.

"Chalk Dust" ~ Speaks for itself?

.... but it has to be in the title rather than the lyrics? Therefore Pink Floyd's Another Brick in The Wall would be ruled out despite being totally concerned with (one man's whiny view of) the educational experience. I guess there are few other places where there would be a BOYS' as opposed to a men's room so 'Smokin' .... might just scrape within the bounds of the OP.

Brass, 'The Boy's room' in the title is to do with school surely, ie the boys restroom(not that we had restrooms at our school/s)
