Any of the schools under the Public Schools Act 1868, which includes Charterhouse, Eton, Harrow, Winchester, Westminster etc... and i'm very bitter that i wasn't sent to one of these as a good 50% of my family were.

so i went to a normal private school(nottingham) and i thought i was on top of the world
but wats up wit le rosey, are they taking the michael
The public school act is biased to schools in the south, becoz in the 19 century they didnt like to clever scottish people running the country (gordon brown)
love capitalism, we are dicussing the most posh school amd a few threads below people are talking about not getting their EMA.
I would argue that the three schools you earlier specified "Harrow, St Pauls and Eton" are all elitist only in the sense you need to have a lot of money to attend them. Harrow is not massively academic however, and even Eton is always below St Pauls in the school league tables, so only really St Pauls is a challenge to get into for the bright. None are particuarly exclusive anymore in terms of social class; you only need to pass an entrance exam to get in. They are exclusive only as far as you need to be able to pay the fees, which admittedly excludes the vast majority of people,
Personally if my parents had an extra £30K a year rolling around and they chose to send me to school with it, I'd be worried. If you're intelligent, you'll excel wherever you go. If you're stupid, then no amount of money is going to change that.
