I didn't even know Harrow existed until today :rolleyes:
All I've heard of are Harrow, Winchester and Eton 'cause the rich kids on 'Young Posh and Loaded' were speaking of them.

Rich does not equal posh nor does posh always equal rich - incidentally "posh" is a word "posh" people in the know don't use.

Yes but in the case of those on 'Young Posh and Loaded' they were all rich and it was ITV that called them rich, not me.

I go to an independent school which gets excellent academic results, a lot of people do get 10A*. I'm not sure what you mean by pressure though, are you talking about teachers making pupils work hard or do you mean an attitude like "you've got to get 10A*s or you're a failure"?

Here's another thread on a very similar theme:

i dont think so, just like i disagree with extra time and laptops. 1 in 3 people in my history set (thats 5) have got a laptop and i know how most of them fiddled it and i reckon i could get one.

how come they have laptops...id love on for english...hehe

I didn't catch that program. What did they say about Winchester? usually these types of programmes concentrate on etonians; i'm surprised winchester/harrow came up!

Correct. Posh is how other people perceive you to be. Being rich is just having lots of money.

The fact they chose to appear on the program in the first place shows that they feel socially insecure because they are new rich

I wasn't aware that Harrow was a school just for boys. I've looked everywhere for pictures :rolleyes:
I think even harrow has gone co-ed for 6th form nowadays. Most public schools have.

Many believe my old school is the most beautiful of all the schools in the country. Judge for yourself.

I can't access it!

Although I've seen Winchester and it looks quite nice. I'm not sure how I'd cope there though. I'm going to look at Etons now.

It was an awful program really, it protrayed those who had a lot of money to be very stuck up and fit the stereotype. But I know it isn't true of most.

It went wrong somehow. I've edited it now with quotation marks on it so the address is up but just leave off the quotation marks.
