Eaton college ( established in 1440 by King Henry VI ), is currently one
of the largest and most distinguished private schools in England.
It's original purpose was to provide education for 70 students, funded
by the king himself. However, Eton is currently the home to
almost 1,300 pupils. Boys who attend Eaton start around the age of
13, and stay until their graduation at the age of 18. The admission
process is rigorous, adding to the prestige of the school.
