Letter: Wrong school for scandal

OPTING out would seem to have made no difference to Queen Elizabeth Boys' School, Barnet, which I attended from 1963-69 ('Opt-out school getting rid of troublesome boys', 26 July).

In my era it was not uncommon for parents to be invited to remove their offspring, when it was considered they were disruptive. Surely it is wrong that a minority should jeopardise the education of the majority.

Queen Elizabeth's has always maintained high standards, and in many respects has always 'acted in a traditional public school style'. I fully support its policy.
