In response to Eton- a quick ?, written by Tay on July 05, 1998 at 20:39:36
] Is Eton College a sort of prepatory school for boys to go before they move on to Oxford? Or are those two on equal footing?
Tay, Eton college was and is one of the most prestigious "public" schools (not the same as a preparatory school- the prep school prepares you for public school).Most of the boys who went to Eton were destined for Oxford or Cambridge in Jane Austen's time.
