Oundle Festival of Literature presents
Martin Stephen: The English Public School
Tuesday, 11th September
7:45pm - 8:45pm
The Great Hall
Oundle School, New St., PE8 4GH
Tickets: £8 / £6
The English Public School is a study of the positives and negatives of the private school system, what has gone wrong, and what needs to change.
Until his retirement in 2011, Dr Martin Stephen was High Master of St Paul’s School and before that of Manchester Grammar School, two of the most academically successful independent schools in the world.
Stephen’s experiences mean that he is uniquely placed to write a study of that extraordinary phenomenon, the English public school, institutions that are as admired in some quarters as they are despised and vilified in others.
His book pulls no punches when it comes to the author's views on the failings of private educational establishments, while also showing that their benefits can be, and increasingly are, harnessed for a much wider good. His often scathing and satirical view of public schools make his book a must read for anyone who is thinking of putting little Tarquin down for Eton or, conversely, for anyone who would like to see the places razed and their ruins sown with salt. But, as the author writes, 'If you are English and reading this now, a public school boy or girl is influencing your life.'
