    A study carried out by School Stickers, who supply over 10,000 schools with stickers and certificates for good behaviour, analysed report cards and statistics from over 70,000 children at 10,000 different schools.

    Data revealed children named Anna, Millie, Ryan and Harry were more likely to receive glowing report cards. Whilst those named James, Joseph, Leah and Abigail were more likely to be sat on the naughty step.

    While findings reveal the names more likely to be associated with good or bad behaviour, Neil Hodges, managing director of School Stickers, says the study is “just a bit of fun”. He says: “There are many children called Leah and Joseph who are perfect little angels, just as there are many called Harry and Anna who Santa is watching!”
