Why not do a bit of research for yourself? Every public school in the country has got a website i'd imagine, go browse...

Is this some History of PE thing? Basically, write about stuff like how public schools inflicted sports on the boys (mostly boys in previous centuries, but girls too more recently), and so a lot of early development in modern team sports took place there. For example, Rugby was invented at (surprise!) Rugby school, by a guy called William Webb-Ellis, can't remember when. Also, stuff like cricket wouldn't be half as popular as it is now if it weren't for its being played a lot at public schools.

Not particularly useful, but it's a start.

Go work out how many of the England rugby team are public school educated... about half I'd guess.

Or see the impact of Leicester Tigers RFC on Oakham School.
