    Just noticed my AES finally updated to show a link to St. Hild & St. Bede. I have no idea whatsoever about that college... (I was living in the false hope of getting into Castle up until right now, 5 minutes ago ). Anything in particular I should know about that place?
    Supposedly notoriously posh I don't know, I've been put there too.
    It's not a hill, and it's not a bailey college. A bit of an anomaly.

    ...I think :P

    Haha! I guess I'll maybe see you some time then. (and I also figured asking before checking the wiki article is a bad habit. It definitely raised my impression - I guess I just didn't like the sound of the name at first )

    The college is sometimes regarded as having a slightly disproportionate public school intake and an inclination towards competitive sport. Hild Bede's sporting reputation is strong, putting forward several teams in a variety of sports.
    Does that mean that they take more people from private schools? (probably uncited wiki rumours, but that's all I have to go on for now )

    Thanks.

    Edit:
    PS: Just noticed Hild Bede doesn't run gowned formals (oh noes! ), so I'd like to know how much black tie costs in the UK (Wikipedia didn't tell me ;p)?
    Thanks!
