The Great Escape

Looking to write a true life story. In fact, my own story from around 8 to 12 years old (from 1970-1974). The main elements of the story:

The story is about a young boy growing up in Belfast.

The main thread is about the sinister, brutal world of the catholic school system.

The two sub-threads. Firstly, the backdrop of life in the centre of sectarian violence. Secondly, for many children, the additional harshness of home life.

After a dramatic false dawn, the story ends with a "great escape" as the young boy starts life in a "new world".

Chapter 1 - Holy Child primary school - the story of these years plus an introduction to the catholic school system

Chapter 2 - Life in Belfast (1969-72) - living in the middle of sectarian warfare.

Chapter 3 - The false dawn - partial escape to another area of the city, only to be confronted with the Christian Brothers.

Chapter 4 - The Christian Brothers - the story of these years plus an expose of the "teaching methods" of the time.

Chapter 4 - Life in Belfast (1972-74) - financial strain due to surrounding violence. Time to leave.

Chapter 5 - The great escape - another world.

Some additional points:

Recent abuse scandals in the catholic church have been well documented. However, the scale of physical abuse in catholic schools is still to be fully uncovered.

The dark side of the 1970s. The more we find out, it becomes increasingly clear the seventies were not as they appeared.

There would be no need for dramatic effect, this is a straight forward story, told in a factual manner, as it happened (drama, tension, intrigue come for free!).

From the research I've done, I can't find any existing book telling this type of story or covering these subjects.

Anyone who has experienced the "traditional" catholic school system will be able to relate to this story.

Alternatively, anyone unfamiliar with the subject, will find the story shocking or even disturbing.
