School's Out is a BBC television series hosted by Danny Wallace. Based on the premise of school subjects, celebrity contestants are asked questions they would have been asked at school.

Rounds[edit]

  • The General Knowledge Round - Each contestant is asked four questions on any subject, the contestants are asked at random
  • The Timetable round - A school timetable is shown, five days with six subjects per day. Contestants pick a day and then one subject in the morning and one in the afternoon and are asked a question based on that subject. Five points awarded for a single subject question and ten points for a double.
  • The French Oral Round - French teacher Virginie Hopstein asks each contestant individually to answer questions she asks in French. Points out of twenty are awarded afterwards
  • The Project Round - A subject is given to the students and three questions are asked, points awarded for each question.
  • The Music Round - Each contestant is given a recorder and has to play a part of a song when asked (from series 2 onwards)
  • The Quick Fire Round - The overall winner is given a timetable similar to the one in round two. They are given a minute to get from Monday to Friday answering a question correctly to progress. They must answer one double subject along the way.
