The Best Back to School Movies

Bored of school already? These films might be just what you need to get excited about it again!

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

This is a oldie but classic film about a real-life Roger the Dodger who decides to skip school one day. How exciting could that be, we hear you ask? Well - quite a lot it turns out. No point explaining it too much... just watch it!

Monsters University

Ever wondered how Mike and Sully from Monsters, Inc. met? It was at University - and they didn't get on as well as you might think...

This is a great film about starting at a new school and making friends - but featuring weird creatures with beaks and fur and stuff.

School of Rock

This is one of those films about a cool teacher - except this one's a really cool teacher. Definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it!

Any of the Harry Potter films

There's 8 of them to choose from, each one guaranteed to make you wish your school was as interesting as Hogwarts (even though your school is probably safer). If you haven't seen them, then first of all ask yourself why not. After that, start with number one: The Philosopher's Stone. 

For everyone who has seen them all, if you watch them all backwards Harry gets younger!

Napoleon Dynamite

Nerdy teenager Napoleon Dynamite and his new friend Pedro try to run for class presidency in a weird American town. If it doesn't sound that interesting, that's because you haven't seen it yet! This is the ultimate school comedy and very silly the whole way through. Check it out!
