The uniform is Dickensian, the sports arcane, the fees astronomical. But Eton College still stitches itself into the fabric of our national life like no other school – the breeding ground for princes and prime ministers, where the arriviste meets the aristocrat. What is it about Eton? For many it is a symbol of all that is wrong with Britain: an obstacle to modernity and a powerful force for privilege, elitism, and snobbery. For others it represents a beacon of tradition and excellence in an otherwise monochrome world. But whether you love, loathe, fear or ridicule it, no one can ignore a school which has such an impact on those who go there – and those who don’t. Award-winning film maker Nick Fraser draws on his own experiences as an “OE”, as well as those of teachers and fellow pupils – famous and infamous – to evaluate the phenomenon that is Eton.
