HARROW, UNITED KINGDOM - SEPTEMBER 16, 2015: Pupils make their way to class at Harrow School. Harrow School is an English independent school for boys situated in the town of Harrow, in north-west London. There is evidence that there has been a school on the site since 1243, but the Harrow School of today was formally founded in 1572 by John Lyon under a Royal Charter of Elizabeth I. Harrow is one of the original ten public schools that were regulated by the Public Schools Act 1868. The School has an enrollment of around 814 boys spread across twelve boarding houses, all of whom board full-time. It remains one of the four all-boys, full-boarding schools in Britain, the others being Eton College, Radley College and Winchester College. Harrow's uniform includes straw hats, morning suits, top hats and canes. Its long line of famous alumni includes eight former British/Indian Prime Ministers including Churchill, Baldwin, Peel, and Palmerston. (Photo by Peter Dench/Getty Images Reportage)
