Alex Renton

Schooled in Hard Knocks

Stiff Upper Lip is Alex Renton’s unflinching investigation into the traditions and culture of schooling among Britain's elites. Confronting the horrors and unhappiness of his own boarding school days, he uncovers an uncomfortable story of institutional hypocrisy and complicity. With many former pupils now leading the country, Renton asks difficult questions about the impact this educational approach has had, and will continue to have on wider society.
