McCartney Learned To Get Tough From School

STELLA McCARTNEY is relieved she attended a local school and not a private one - as the tough environment "strengthened" her.

The fashion-designing daughter of SIR PAUL McCARTNEY and the late LINDA McCARTNEY believes being sent to the comprehensive school near their family home in East Sussex, England taught her how to stand up for herself.

The 33-year-old says, "I didn't have a bad childhood. I didn't have an idyllic one either...

"I got a bit of a hard time at comprehensive school, but I think that really strengthened me.

"If I'd gone to a private school, it would have been all 'Oh, there's lady da-di-da', that kind of circle'."
