Sam [text removed] was 11 and was not quite sure where he lived. The only thing he knew for certain was that he went to Woolverstone Hall - a stately mansion in Suffolk which is now a boarding school. It's not a traditional public school, but a comprehensive - and it's run, improbably, by the Inner London Education Authority.
For boys like Sam, Woolverstone is security.
Many of the pupils here come from deprived homes. It's more expensive than Eton. ILEA wants to close Woolverstone, but Headmaster, Richard Woolett , is not prepared to give up.... Producer RICHARD DENTON % CEEFAX SUBTITLES
