Eton to go co-ed?
Richard Eden writing in the Daily Mail has claimed Eton College in Berkshire is considering admitting girls.
Eton’s provost Lord Waldegrave, the former Conservative Cabinet minister is quoted saying: “I’ll let you into a secret. Every year, the governors of Eton consider whether Eton should go co-ed. And we don’t quite decide. But, of course, we will go co-ed in due course.”
Lord Waldegrave has been provost, or chairman of Eton’s governing body, since 2009.
