    Granted, just used Eton because Prince Harry was a nice example most people will have heard.

    Again, don't make the mistake of thinking all public schools are for clever, rich children.
    I accept that there are numerous private schools which are full of people with money but no intelligence, but Eton is certainly not an example. If that were so, then this would show in the exam results.

    LOL

    Private schools have bad kids? i think not! you idea of bad is being 5 minutes late for class! the school I went to was renound for taking in drop outs from other schools in the area because nowhere else would have them! lets say that our school looks like a prison suposedly to keep intruders out but really its to keep the students in. at one point everyday the lessons after dinner were either canceled or a number of classes were combined cos of all the student who just went home at dinner. i remember in my last year a couple of guys decided to set fire to the roof, we had fire drills about twice aday cos people just kept setting them off, the fire department actually fined the school. there were bars on the windows cos they were always getting shashed.

    I also have a friend who went to a privete school for a while and he says that there arn't bad people in private schools.

    If you think smoking and drinking underage are bad then over 95% of my old school are bad! and if there were bad people in private school then they would get chucked out cos they don't have to keep the students there
    excuse me! but how do you know our idea of being bad? have you actually been to a private school!
    lets see.. one student turns up to school about once or twice a week!..yeah great! students decided to do pot on school trips....even better! our head girl shags a maths teacher...wooohooo!..one of our students tells our teacher to **** off cos hes a **** head and then walks out while kicking the **** into a prep former!.......good pupils? i think not!

    As I said, I ONLY used Eton because of the example of Prince Harry.

    I could have talked about my old school, and the number of people who went there from single parent families with very little money. I could talk about the girl who was, aged 12, involved in petty crime who was given free education at the school's expense. She is now at university in Cardiff and doing very well. But it means very little to anyone other than myself, or people who actually knew them.

    By the sounds of things, your school is only private in the sense that they cannot actually allow the students out of isolation and into contact with the general public for safety reasons.

    But how much of it is actual intelligence and how much of it is just excellent spoon feeding and regurgitation? Because you can get away with good A-level results just by having a large memory if you are being spoon fed.

    Quite a lot of it is actual intelligence considering the competition for places. You cant have 40% of your students going to either oxford or cambridge by simply spoonfeeding them.

    How can you tell if someone is going to be intelligent when they take their GCSEs/A-levels if the entrance test is taken at an age of 11? Thinking about it, you can imagine how much preparation and 'extra oxbridge' lessons those 40% are going to have in their application to oxbridge - I actually heard from a student at Eton who said that when applying, some house masters practically write their personal statements for them...

    There is only so much you can teach somebody. The rest is up to the individual. And people at eton are generally very intelligent. Otherwise you could apply the same logic to every school which has a written test as part of its selection proceedure. You simply cannot spoonfeed somebody how to survive in an intensive interview situation.

    Yes, but the difference is there are more of these kind of pupils at a comp than at a private school and its harder to concentrate with this stuff going on, as you probably know. Oh, and about one in twenty kids at a comp knocks off each day. I've known loads of people who didn't bother to turn up at all, but this isn't a problem really - if they're not there, they can't cause trouble.

    And let's turn the question back on you: How do you know how bad it is in a comp? I agree, I don't know too much about private schools, but I would expect that you get more bad kids at a comprehensives (as if you pay a lot for something, you make damned sure that your kids go and work hard).

    But they are still at an advantage.
