Dream School Yearbook

Lessons would have been so much more fun with these guys

Dream School Yearbook

Ah school - the best days of your life right? Well, actually, no, they weren't always that brilliant - boring lessons, never-ending detentions and annoying classmates. But what if you could choose your fellow students? You'd have the best sports team, be in the coolest gang, and pick up the hottest girls.

We present 31 of the kids that we'd have loved to have had in our class at school. We'd have never wanted summer holidays to come.

Ferris Bueller

Film:Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Graduation Year: 1986

Why you'd want him in your class:

If you're looking for someone to get in trouble with, then this guy is the consumate professional. Skip school, joyride a Ferarri and get a free meal at an upmarket restaurant by pretending to be the Sausage King of Chicago. Beats double maths.


Harry Potter

Film: Any of the 7 Harry Potter Blockbusters

Graduation Year: 1998

Why you'd want him in your class:

Sure, he might be a little straight-laced and dull, but who cares about that when he can teach magic tricks? Perfect for impressing the girls on a night down the youth club. Also a mean addition to the school quidditch team.


Fogel aka McLovin

Film:Superbad

Graduation Year: 2007

Why you'd want him in your class:

Fogel would be an amazing classmate for a variety of reasons. He's a geek who can help with your homework, he's got fake ID to get booze for your party, and by night he is McLovin, a god of the bedroom.


Hermione Grainger

Film: Any of the 7 Harry Potter blockbusters

Graduation Year: 1998

Why you'd want her in your class:

Like Harry, it's always handy to have someone to teach you magic to woo ladies. And, let's face it, she'd definitely be your first school crush. You could always teach her the 'detached thumb' trick; we're pretty sure they didn't cover that one at Hogwarts, and it's a winner every time.


Bill S. Preston & Ted Theodore Logan

Film:Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

Graduation Year: 1989

Why you'd want them in your class:

Every good school needs a good school band, and they don't come much better than the Wyld Stallyns. They'd also prove particularly useful in History lessons, what with their ability to time travel and bring famous figures from the past to lecture the class. Keep an eye on Napoleon though.


Cadie Heron

Film:Mean Girls

Graduation Year: 2006

Why you'd want her in your class:

She may have fallen into the wrong crowd, but she's a good girl underneath. And she's not too hard on the eye either. In addition, will prove useful on the academic side of things: she's a mean girl mathlete...


Danny Zuko

Film:Grease

Graduation Year: 1960

Why you'd want him in your class:

The original cool American high-school kid, he's the leader of the T-Birds, has ridiculous greased hair, and can probably sort you out with a quality leather jacket. A guy worth knowing.


Sandy Olsson

Film:Grease

Graduation Year: 1960

Why you'd want her in your class:

Way before Rihanna, Sandy was the good girl gone (slightly) bad. Get her in a leather catsuit and your old Geography teacher wouldn't know what to do.


Kathryn Merteuil

Film:Cruel Intentions

Graduation Year: 2000

Why you'd want her in your class:

Okay, so she's a total psycho, but every class needs one of those, and at least she's really hot. And that cold, calculating mastermind of hers would come in handy when you were trying to come up with an explanation for not doing your homework.


Daniel LaRusso

Film:Karate Kid

Graduation Year: 1986

Why you'd want him in your class:

You'd have no fear from any class bullies with the Karate Kid around to protect you. And Mr Miyagi would certainly make a pleasant change from your usual sadistic PE teachers.


Napoleon Dynamite

Film:Napoleon Dynamite

Graduation Year: 2007

Why you'd want him in your class:

Firstly, Napoleon would be worth having purely for the end-of-year prom. You can keep your slow dances, just get him up on that stage and get Jamiroquai on the soundsystem.

Secondly, he might bring his pet llama into school, which would be excellent for all involved.

Thirdly, taking the register every day would be hilarious ("Dynamite?", "Present").


Marty McFly

Film:Back to the Future

Graduation Year: 1987

Why you'd want him in your class:

He's a good guy, a talented skateboarder, and he listens to Van Halen. And you might get to have a ride in the DeLorean if you're very, very lucky...


Steven Stifler

Film:American Pie

Graduation Year: 2002

Why you'd want him in your class:

The ultimate frat boy, he's obnoxious, but easy to prank back. And with Stifler, comes Stifler's mom.....


Peter Parker

Film:Spiderman

Graduation Year: 2004

Why you'd want him in your class:

Not difficult to justify having young Peter in the all-star class list: he's a seemingly regular teenager who happens to be a crime-fighting superhero, utilising an ability to harness spider-like qualities. You just know that will come in handy at some point, even if it's just daring him to climb up the walls of the sports hall.


Scott Howard

Film:Teen Wolf

Graduation Year: 1986

Why you'd want him in your class:

Way before Gladiators, this guy was the original sporty Wolf. Able to change at will between human and canine, this seems to give him an unusual advantage at basketball, so watch your school team sail up the league.


Sidney Prescott

Film:Scream

Graduation Year: 1998

Why you'd want her in your class:

She's probably a little psychologically damaged after having her mother and most of her friends murdered by her previous boyfriends, but that means she'll probably settle for an average-looking bloke and a quiet life from now on. You're well in there.


Jim Stark

Film:Rebel Without a Cause

Graduation Year: 1956

Why you'd want him in your class:

He's the original teenage rebellion. His parents "don't understand". Our only concern is that if he was around in the present day he'd be listening to My Chemical Romance and 30 Seconds to Mars and wearing a lot of eyeliner. We'll take the risk, it is James Dean.


Scott Evil

Film:Austin Powers

Graduation Year: 1999

Why you'd want him in your class:

Networking is an important part of moving your way up the business ladder, and his father owns a large corporation, Virtucon. He may be slightly evil, but it's better to have these people on your side than against you isn't it? You might also get to play with some sharks with laser beams on their heads, and if you're lucky, get Scott to bring them in to be let loose in the school swimming pool.


Matthew Kidman

Film:The Girl Next Door

Graduation Year: 2004

Why you'd want him in your class:

We'll be honest here. Matthew might be a good guy and all that, very moral, very smart, yeah great, but he's not in this list for his own talents. Make friends with him and you'll get to visit his house. And his next-door neighbour. We'll leave you to google the rest.


Gary Wallace and Wyatt Donnelly

Film:Weird Science

Graduation Year: 1988

Why you'd want them in your class:

Two nerdy boys, but it seems they've been paying enough attention in Science to be able to magically create the perfect woman. Those are two nerdy boys worth hanging out with.


Donnie Darko

Film:Donnie Darko

Graduation Year: 1990

Why you'd want him in your class:

The definition of a guy who'd take one for the team - he's happy to let a jet engine kill him to save the world. You'd only be asking to copy his homework so we're sure he'd say yes.


Andy Clark, Brian Johnson, John Bender, Claire Standish & Allison Reynolds

Film:The Breakfast Club

Graduation Year: 1986

Why you'd want them in your class:

We were going to choose one, but then we realised they all have their strengths, and their weaknesses, and, much like the Spice Girls, you need all 5 there or it's just not as good. Each one is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal, and those are all good attributes for excellent classmates.


Kelly Van Ryan

Film:Wild Things

Graduation Year: 1999

Why you'd want her in your class:

She's rich, she's popular, but she's also cunning and devious. But let's put all that aside. She's really hot and she might bring a friend along too.


Brendan Frye

Film:Brick

Graduation Year: 2007

Why you'd want him in your class:

A supersleuth high schooler, Brendan would be a good guy to know - if you ever had your dinner money stolen from your locker, you can bet he'd get to the bottom of it.


Jeff Spicoli

Film:Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Graduation Year: 1983

Why you'd want him in your class:

Surfer, stoner, class joker with a penchant for winding up the teacher. Every class needs one of those when it's 3 o'clock on a Thursday afternoon and absolutely no-one is listening in Physics.
