    The 15 private schools that are hardest to get into in the UK
    http://uk.businessinsider.com/the-hardest-private-schools-to-get-into-in-the-uk-2016-8
    Getting a place at a private school is a stamp of status in the UK. But some private institutions are tougher to get into than others. That's why we've compiled a ranking of schools that are the most difficult to get into in the country — whether that's because of their celebrity alumni, outstanding extra-curricular activities, or students' high academic achievements.  From royal family favourite Eton College to Benenden, where there is a four-year waiting list, here are our top 15:

    15. The King's School Canterbury. Annual fees: £35,385
    Location: Canterbury, Kent
    Number of students: 828
    Type: Mixed

    The King's School in Canterbury was founded in 597 A.D., and is thought to be the oldest continuously running school in the world. Parents are advised to register for enrollment two years in advance, with a registration fee of £200. Orlando Bloom is a former student.

    14. Fettes College. Annual fees: £32,340
    Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
    Number of students: 565
    Type: Mixed

    Fettes College in Scotland might be the prettiest boarding school in the country. It counts former Prime Minister Tony Blair as a former pupil.

    13. Gordonstoun. Annual fees: £35,922
    Location: Moray, Scotland
    Annual fees: £35,922
    Number of students: 604
    Type: Mixed

    Notoriously strict, Gordonstoun in Scotland is named after its 150-acre estate, which was originally owned by Sir Robert Gordon in the 17th century. The school doesn't offer open days, with staff preferring to arrange private viewings for families throughout the year. The school was also attended by Prince Charles.


    12. Marlborough College. Annual fees: £31,350

    Location: Marlborough, Wiltshire
    Number of students: 928
    Type: Mixed

    Marlborough won Tatler's Best Public School award in 2015, and was attended by the Duchess of Cambridge. Prospective students must complete two interviews with members of staff and a test organised by the school as part of their application.

    11. Cheltenham Ladies' College. Annual fees: £34,302
    Location: Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
    Number of students: 873
    Type: All girls

    This girls' school in Gloucestershire has a strong academic record and a focus on the arts. Competition for places at sixth form is "fierce," according to the school. The newly refurbished theatre and arts centre is used by the town for its jazz, literature, and science festivals.

    10. Tonbridge School. Annual fees: £37,539
    Location: Tonbridge, Kent
    Number of students: 789
    Type: All boys

    Tonbridge School in Kent stands out for its handsome Victorian buildings and 150 acres of playing fields. There's a strong focus on academics, and the school achieved its best-ever GCSE results in 2014 with 94% of students achieving A* or A grades. Tonbridge's playing fields were recognised as an Olympic training venue in 2012.

    9. Stowe School. Annual fees: £33,000
    Location: Stowe, Buckinghamshire
    Number of students: 769
    Type: Mixed

    Sir Richard Branson famously left Stowe School with no qualifications at the age of 16. Students take a common entrance exam as part of their application, and must apply three years in advance.

    8. Benenden. Annual fees: £34,455
    Location: Cranbrook, Kent
    Number of students: 544
    Type: All girls

    Benenden is the only girls' all-boarding school in the UK, and counts Princess Anne as one of its former pupils. A four-year waiting list to attend makes this a tough place to get into. There are around three applications for every place available.

    7. Charterhouse School. Annual fees: £36,774
    Location: Godalming, Surrey
    Number of students: 788
    Type: Mixed

    Founded by Thomas Sutton in 1611, Charterhouse School moved in 1872 from London to Godalming, where the new school was built in 200 acres of landscaped grounds. Famous alumni include TV presenter Jonathan Dimbleby, and health secretary Jeremy Hunt. Students apply three years in advance, with parents paying a £250 registration fee.

    6. Ampleforth Abbey and College. Annual fees: £32,733
    Location: Ampleforth, Yorkshire
    Number of students: 607
    Type: Mixed

    Ampleforth College is the only Catholic full-boarding school in the UK. More than 70% of the student body is made up of practicing Catholics, but the school welcomes all religions. The school advises on its website that "children who come from Christian families are most likely to benefit from an Ampleforth education."

    5. The City of London School. Annual fees: £14,886
    Location: London
    Number of students: 920
    Type: All boys

    The City of London School is right in the heart of the capital on the river Thames. It doesn't offer boarding, but has a strong academic reputation, with around 10 applicants for every place in year six, according to Tatler. Daniel Radcliffe studied here while starring in the Harry Potter films, and there is also a sister-school for girls.

    4. Winchester School. Annual fees: £36,678
    Location: Winchester
    Number of students: 690
    Type: All boys

    Winchester is a boys-only boarding school in Hampshire. 35% of graduating pupils won places at Oxford and Cambridge last year.

    3. Westminster School. Annual fees: £36,462
    Location: London
    Number of students: 741
    Type: Mixed

    Westminster School sits right next to Parliament and Westminster Cathedral. Weekly assemblies are held in "Westminster Latin" — a dialect that's unique to the school. Prospective students hoping to enrol in year nine take a"pre-test" in year six, and should register three years in advance.

    2. Harrow School. Annual fees: £37,350
    Location: London
    Number of students: 825
    Type: All boys

    London's Harrow School was founded in 1572, but there's some evidence that boys were taught on the site as early as 1243, according to Christopher Tyerman's book, "A History of Harrow School 1324 - 1991." The institution is famous for its strong academic record, fierce rivalry with Eton College, and boater hats.

    1. Eton College. Annual fees: £37,602
    Location: Windsor, Berkshire
    Number of students: 1,300
    Type: All boys

    A favourite of the royal family, Eton College is the UK's best-known private school. Both Princes Harry and William are former pupils, as well as David Cameron, Boris Johnson and Eddie Redmayne. It's notoriously competitive, with around 23% of applicants earning a place.

    不同类型的学校,这个list里面的学校基本上是“old money”,  St Paul可以说是“new money”, 另外这些学校住校,St Paul不住校。上这些学校的人家和St Paul不同类型。

    唯一一个上榜不住校的学校上榜的原因应该是学费便宜。

    选择孩子住校和不住校的家庭对孩子教育的需求是不一样的。

    Old money “vieux riche” is "the inherited wealth of established upper-class families",一般指财富几代人延续下来的家族,比如说贵族,地主和rothschind这样的银行家族。

    New money "Nouveau riche" is a term, usually derogatory, to describe those whose wealth has been acquired within their own generation, rather than by familial inheritance. 一般指刚刚富裕起来和刚刚从低的社会阶层升上来的家庭(包括暴发户)。

    这个list里面的很多学校会snob那些 new money的。

    A lot of British people don't know what are "public" and "independent" schools, the use of private would cause minimal misunderstanding especially for international audiences.

      On a second thought, it's perhaps intended to serve as a disambiguation for international readers, to whom the British ways of calling British schools may sound peculiar.

      Erm, I've hardly encountered British who'd use 'private school' this way. But surely there're British, and British. BTW Business Insiders is an American magazine.
