The posh girls I know say Rodean is all Chinese these days, while Cheltenham LC is mostly the school of choice of megarich Arab oil money. Downe House and Benenden are supposedly the home to English party girls and future high-society mugs. Wycombe Abbey is a favourite for brainiacs and Chinese math wizards. St. Paul's is a favourite for comfortably upper middle class professionals (note not rich, but comfortable) who don't want their daughters to board. I also hear it's preferred amongst the North London Jewish community. The same can be said of St. Catherine's of Guildford. St. george's of Ascot, I hear attracts girls with a talent for music and the arts. Tudor Hall and St. Swithun's, on the other hand, are the oldline all girls public boarding school where most of the student body is bluestocking, old money, and hail largely still from the old aristiocratic families of England. St. Swithun's also attracts girls who like playing lacrosse and the horsey set too.

St. Swithin's is menat to be full of rah girls with faces like horses and names like Penelope Double-Barreled. I also hear they have a passion for Lacrosse and taking snobiness to another level. I'm told it's even more snooty than Wycombe Abbey, if that's even possible.

My sister tells me Rodean is known as Beijing High and Rodean is Hong Kong Institute. That should tell you just how many English girls are allowed entance into these kind of schools today. Sounds like they're going for the fast money from filthy rich and overly ambitious parents back in China, knowing too that these girls will do nothing but work, work, work, work, work and not get into any kind of trouble are Englsih sisters are capable of getting into. More money and less headaches for the school administraitors and staff.

Pardon the typo, Cheletenham Ladies College is called Hong Kong College.

I get the impression that the first 2 posters are the same person, taking a shot at rival schools.

I get the impression you're wrong. Nothing worse than a Detective School dropout.

Little sister informs me that St. Mary's Calne, St. Swithuns and Benenden are about the only all-girls boarding schools left these where the Chinese don't outnumber the English girls. She also says that many of the old boarding schools trying to pass themselves off as full boarding are really day schools in disguise. British parents can't afford these places like they used to--especially full boarding, so weekends are spent back at home in Surrey or wherever. Nevertheless, theforeign money is flowing in from international students, so there usually the only ones boarding these days.

I am disappointed that my old school is not featured on your list.

The main stereotype attached to us is mainly as a virtue of our name rhyming with ****s

It makes sense that more internationals will board than domestic students, as they can't exactly be day pupils can they...
