Eton College is a school rich in tradition. In the modern age there are those people, certainly in the
UK, who decry tradition and claim that being connected to history means being shackled to the
past. There is danger for any society or community in paying too great a reverence to the way
things were in the past at the expense of valuing the present and preparing for the future, but it is
my belief that a community such as a school can take great strength from its ethos and educational
philosophy refined over many years and, at the same time, be dynamic and active in facing the
future. This is our aim at Eton. In this session I hope to explain something about the Eton mentality
which has lead to the development of a successful system of education, but I would like to stress
that there is no one solution, no single approach to education that will work for all young people
around the world. At Eton we always seek to learn from the achievements of others. What follows
is an analysis of a philosophy of education that has grown and thrived for 570 years and which has
flourished because it has stayed faithful to core principles while changing with the times.
