Is Smeltings a public or private school?

IS smeltings a public or private school? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 92.10.31.201 (talkcontribs).

It's what would be called in America a private school. However, in England, they're called independent schools or public schools. Read this. 70.242.125.59 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". --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:51, September 10, 2010 (UTC)

Names

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)
