A group of only nine public schools are still producing a large share of the country’s most powerful people, with their former pupils 94 times more likely to reach the top than anyone else.

Analysis of the past 125 years of Who’s Who, which lists the most prominent politicians, lawyers, business leaders and civil servants in the UK, found that one in eight entrants in recent editions comes from one of the nine schools. This compares with one in five in the 1892 edition.

The group, known as Clarendon Schools, are Charterhouse, Eton, Harrow, Merchant Taylors’, Rugby, Shrewsbury, St Paul’s, Westminster and Winchester.................

How utterly depressing. And as good a reason as any to avoid sending a child to any of those establishments if that is how they turn out.
