Former pupils

Most schools have associations of former pupils who keep in touch with each other and the school. They will also provide members to talk to pupils about careers or life at university.

The descriptions of schools in this book list former pupils who have made their mark. It should tell you something about the school if all the notable old boys are rugby internationals but it does not, of course, imply that it will turn your child into a great rugby player – or a writer or a spy.
