Two leading independent schools allow teenage pupils to drink alcohol at on-site nightclubs, it has emerged.
Rugby School and Ampleforth College, a Catholic school with an adjoining monastery in North Yorkshire, both allow students to drink at the venues from the age of 16.
They hope that by teaching the teenagers how to drink in moderation and under supervision, they will foster sensible habits and prevent them from going off the rails, according to The Times.
This was going on 35 years ago. I know damn well it was too, I used to run the damn bar.
