Eton has produced some of the most successful young men of our generation. It counts Prince William, David Cameron and Eddie Redmayne among its prestigious alumni.
How do these privileged students become so successful? Retiring headmaster Tony Little has penned a book that asks fundamental questions about education. The book is aptly titled An Intelligent Person’s Guide to Education.
If you have a 16-year-old at home then this might just interest you. There are lists for parents and lists for students including the books every bright 16-year-old should read. Along with books on various subjects such as Music and Economics is a list of literature that should be read. So, parents, have you read these books because your 16-year-old should have?
