The cruellest prep school in the country

Ah, the Brighton College cult.
The Prep is a poor quality school, which parents put up with for the promise of the sunlit uplands at the College. You will tutor your kids to the eyeballs because the CE pressure is massive; any kids that falter will get the infamous "tap on the shoulder" and the encouragement to consider another option - which is not actually a request.
Academically borderline children will have trumped up behavioural charges levelled at them, and will lose the "headmaster's recommendation" - the death knell for their chances at the College.
Don't be fooled by all the talk of kindness and inclusivity - this is the cruellest prep school in the country. Apparently the College is no better either, although their ruthless weeding at CE means they keep the grades up, which is all they really care about.
On the plus side, the food is apparently quite good.
