Girls at boys public schools

IN your issue for March 22, Desmond Albrow asks which Catholic public school will be the first to be attended by girls. The answer is that it has already happened. o was the Redrice As you know, the first boys' public school to be founded and run by Catholic laymen; and far from following Marlborough we have already given what we hope is a lead in accepting girls.

Last year we were asked if we could accommodate two girls in sixth form Science classes; the girls have completed two terms, and the pilot scheme seems eminently successful, as was another experiment at Christmas — a joint production of "The Pirates of Penzance" with the girls' school who had sent us the two scientists.

Provided that parents want it, we will be happy to open our sixth form to more girls in future.
