Was there a topdown parachuting game? Have memories of playing that a lot. Otherwise I can only say Elite and Frak as they're my only BBC gaming experiences (our school had these weird RML micros)

Same at mine. Bet they probably paid a fortune for them too!

We also had one of those massive Doomsday CD drives, but I don't remember a single person using it. :?

Has to be Granny's Garden, as its the first game I ever remember playing. I wish it was some massively regarded classic, but that was computing in schools in the 80s
