The Independent Schools won a vital legal battle today over The Charity Commission, who had been too narrow in some of the ways it made schools show benefit to society, according to a tribunal ruling.
"It's marvellous news," said Eton College Head Roary Farquhar outside the court. "I'm looking forward to something nice, expensive and bubbly with staff and governors this evening.
"It goes to show that opening the swimming pool to the local oiks, sorry, local school pupils was worth it all along.
"By the way, can I assure parents that the pool was emptied after every session and scrubbed with industrial-strength bleach? I know because I rolled my sleeves up and joined in myself on more than one occasion!"
