Founded by King Henry VI in 1440, Eton College provides quality education to young boys aged 13-18 years. Located in Eton, Berkshire, near Windsor, this boarding school for boys provides quality education along with high quality sporting and cultural activities. Getting an admission in this independent school is solely based on the student’s knowledge in the all- round activities and does not depend on his financial background.

Robert Walpole, John Stuart, George Grenville, William Pitt the Elder, Frederick North, William Grenville are some of them. Apart from the Prime Ministers, distinguished personalities like Harry Lloyd, who is well known for his role as Viserys Targaryen in the Game of Thrones series made his television debut while studying at the Eton College. Alexander Guy Rushworth Loudon, popularly known as Alexander Loudon by the cricket audience worldwide captained the 1st XI, while studying at Eton.
