Both writers in the two texts set out the school, at first to seem bad and unwelcoming. This is also the case with the education. Lawrence tries to emphasize the school to have a military theme and the pupils to have no individuality. However Dickens tries to emphasize the pupils to be rejects, not cared for by their parents. Dickens' school is in very bad condition with poor and few facilities whereas Lawrence's school is in pretty good condition and is well looked after.
Both texts start by describing the appearance of the schools. Lawrence describes his school as a "prison". The word prison suggests that the school is lifeless, dull and maybe threatening. Similarly Dickens describes his school as a "barn". The word barn suggests that the school is dirty, badly constructed and only suitable for animals. Lawrence
