  1. Yes, this is a footnote – we may be nerds with a sense of humour, but we're still nerds. We analysed approximately 590,000 tweets posted between 1st July 2017 and 31st July 2019 that mentioned 'school' or 'schools' and were geotagged as having come from within or close to England. We excluded a few unusually prolific, monomaniacal or otherwise unrepresentative Twitter accounts, as well as a list of about 200 'stop words' that proved uninformative (eg, commonly used words such as prepositions).
