Thats what devolution does. It allows a certain level of autonomy to allow it to spend more money on certain things. I don't think Scotland is being spiteful, it's not as if Scottish students coming south are getting free tuition.
Actually, I imagine they do it because they'd be totally swamped with applications if they paid the fees for English students. Scotland is psychologically within reach where a Dutch/Belgian/French/Irish university isn't.
The schools concerned are going against their own code of practice (unless there is some get-out clause for 6th form students)..."PLEASE NOTE Admission to State Boarding Schools in the UK is limited to children who are nationals of the UK and are eligible to hold a full UK passport, or those who are nationals of other European Union countries or those who have the right of residence in the UK.
Yes, I thought that as well. Which schools are recruiting overseas?
