The result was a mixture of the social exclusivity and physical hardships of
public school life, tempered by less certainty of destiny to rule than characterised Eton, Westminster or Harrow; and a greater sense of provincial civic
purpose than was inculcated in those places. Shrewsbury, for example, still
maintains the missionhouse it established for the poor of Liverpool and which
was extended during Wainwright’s time, whilst most senior public schools
have abandoned such activity
