8. Famous Etonians
A. Eton College has educated boys (there are no girls at Eton) for nearly six centuries! Eton is a very old school. It was founded by King Henry VI (who was only 18 at that time). Henry`s aim was to give education to 700 poor boys so that they could then go to Cambridge University (which was founded at the same time). He wrote that the chosen boys should ‘have a good character, be good at reading, Latin grammar and singing’
B. A lot of world – known people have been to Eton, including the novelists Henry Fielding, George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Percy Shelley and Ian Fleming, 18 British prime, and, in recent years, Prince William and Prince Harry. Two important Etonians in British politics today are David Cameron, the leader of the Conservative Party, and Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London. Men who have been educated at Eton are called ‘Old Etonians’ and they often want to send their sons to Eton, too.
C. Jus like Harry Potter`s Hogwarts, Eton is a boarding school where boys live and study away from home. Each boy has his own small room with a bed and desk which he can decorate as he likes (within limits, of course) and where he can entertain his friends. Having your own room from the first day at school (even if you are only 13) is central to Eton`s philosophy. The teachers want their students to think independently and take responsibility for themselves.
D. When a boy comes to Eton he joins a ‘house’ of 50 boys. This house will be the hub of his life for the next five years. Each house is under the care of house master, who looks after the boys, supports them and, if necessary, makes sure they behave them selves. The house master is supported by a dame, who looks after the boys` health and helps them with personal matters. There are a number of important senior boys with responsibilities in the house, too. They will do their best to make sure a boy enjoys his time in the house and takes part in Eton`s activities.
E. Students wear a strange old – fashioned school uniform. It consists of a black tailcoat (or morning coat), black pin – striped trousers, a black waistcoat, well – polished black shoes, a false – collar and a white tie. This uniform is not for special occasions, it is worn at all times and if you visit Eton, you`ll see the boys walking around the campus in these strange clothes. In the past Eton students also wore a top – hat and a walking – cane.
F. With its combination of excellent teachers and small classes, Eton gives its students a very good education. A personal tutor looks after the progress of every boy. When students leave Eton, they usually go to top universities, such as Oxford of Cambridge. Although the college looks old – fashioned, it is very well – equipped and has state – of – the – art laboratories. Every boy has a lap – top computer, and a network connects all classrooms and all boys` bedrooms to the Internet.
G. Languages are very important at Eton. Every boy takes at least two modern languages chosen from French, German, Japanese, Russian and Spanish. Students also study Latin for at least one year and many choose to study Greek as well. Outside the main timetable they may choose Chinese or Arabic. The academic year starts at the end of September and has three terms. The year finishes with the exams in early June.
