AS A GIRL who has just left Marlborough College, may I say how tiresome I find it hearing the often repeated myth that girls at Marlborough are 'put on the Pill' (Letters, 6 September). Girls at Marlborough, as at any other school, are prescribed the Pill, where appropriate, by their GP and not, as implied in your statement, by the headmaster. I neither experienced nor observed any form of sexual pressure at Marlborough. It is a shame that these stories are continually circulated to the detriment of a good school.
