    The Winchester College revolt of 1793. Huh. Apparently there were a lot of them as you say.

    Rebellions in public schools 1780 – 1880 X21, X22, X23, X24, X25
    (See also the website of Rugby School which describes a rebellion by the boys in 1797)
    The excerpts show who was involved and the reasons for the rebellions. The international political context in terms
    of revolutions is referred to in X23.
    •  I'm always reminded of that real world event when (0+ / 0-)

      I watch the original St. Trinians movies, Blue Murder at St. Trinians (the second) begins with the school nominally under siege. So thanks for the information on those, it gives me a start on the search for more data.

      I wish I had stocks in aluminium these days. All that foil would be a great investment opportunity.
