a state school: is free schooling:
a private school: is paid for education often better than a state school but not always
a public school: exclusive and insanely expensive and all at some point have been boarding schools.
trust me i got a bursary to go to a public school called rugby to do my A-levels

Ye its a pity the town went downhill really it used to be really big due to the train line but not so much anymore. Also believe it or not the girls there chose the long scirts over shorter ones. They are supposed to be only ancle length but the fashion there is to where them low down

well oxbridge and durham are collage based universitys. The collage system in these university is very similar to the house system of a public school. Historically the people going to these schools would again be the upper classes who had gone to public school. Due to this the two where modeled after each other. Even now a worryingly high percentage of places at these schools go to public school students, enough to cause suspicion of elitist behavior.
#48 - blargchikahonkhonk (03/04/2014) [-]
ye but its a percentage thing there are a small percentage of publicly schooled people yet they are still manage to make up a big percentage of the oxbridge students. for example at oxford last year 62.8% of the applicants are from state schools whilst 37.2% were from from independent schools (private and public). If system was completly fair then the acceptence would have the same percentage yet 43.2 of people who got in where from independent schools whilst only 56.8 % of people where from state. Even though there are more state schooled people the stats show that you are more likely to get a place if you are from an independent school. Also the fact that 43.2 of people who got in where from independent schools despite these schools only educating 7% of british children suggests that somthing is dodgy somwhere

That's because independent schools generally provide a better education, so the kids who apply are smarter and have better grades. In my opinion the university has no right to know anything about you other than your grades and your personal statement and should decide who gets in based on that information alone. That's the only way to get a fair system.
#52 - blargchikahonkhonk (03/04/2014) [-]
I wish it was like that but to apply to oxford you have to reach the minimum grades anyway so at that point grades are a small factor. One of the main deciding factors in high level university entrance is out of curricular activities. The independant schools and esspecialy the high level public schools train students to fit these category and use links that they have to get events going. I lost count of the amount of lecturers that we had come in to lecture us despite "not doing request for lectures at schools". Also theses schools are able to very easily secure good work experience at company. For example one year the rugby branch of alstom (a french power and transport giant) was offering up to 25 work expedience places. Our school was able to secure 16-18 of those places every year for 4 years (not sure if it continued after me). All im saying is that if you are effectivly able to buy all of these things you can form a link between paying for public schooling and buying better chances for uni.
Its obvious that the public schools get an advantage when selecting teachers. Despite the shortage of qualified teachers in the public sector 2 out of 4 of my maths and chemisty teachers had PHDs and both my physics teachers had PHDs with one being a former professor.
It is far from a fair system at the moment and it realy need updateing to make it so.

I got bursary to a public school that definitely wasn't a boarding school and noone refered to it as a private school. It was expensive (£13 grand before bursary) but there are more expensive schools out there. Also you had to pass an exam to get in but other than that it wasn't really "exclusive".
