Is Smeltings a public or private school?
- It's what would be called in America a private school. However, in England, they're called independent schools or public schools. Read this. 126.96.36.199 15:21, September 10, 2010 (UTC)
It's still called a private school in england, a public school would be a main stream school. The british term IS private. "public School" is a state school, so called because it uses public funds. The wikipedia artical is wrong. mybe we should just put independent.

- "Public school" is the equivalent of the american "private school". What americans call "public school", a british person would call "state school". -- 17:51, September 10, 2010 (UTC)
Currently page Smeltings redirects to Caveat Smeltonia, as if they both mean the school. But surely Smeltings is the school, and Caveat Smeltonia is the school's motto (incorrect Latin for "beware of [the place named] Smelton" or similar). Anthony Appleyard 13:56, March 30, 2011 (UTC)
