Founded in 1843, Marlborough College in the United Kingdom is an elite independent school for day and boarding students aged between 13 and 18.
It counts among its alumni famous names such as the future queen of England, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and her siblings James and Pippa, musician Chris de Burgh and Mrs Samantha Cameron, wife of British Prime Minister David Cameron.
The curriculum inculcates in students an appreciation of the arts, sports and the natural environment, as well as social responsibility and moral values.
But studying there does not come cheap - the school costs up to £30,300 ($59,500) annually.
And the school continues to attract the rich and famous.
Last year, English newspaper The Daily Mail reported that pop star Madonna, 53, hopes to send her son Rocco, 11, from her marriage to Guy Ritchie, to the school.
Rocco will move into the school when he turns 13, reports the newspaper.
But the news remains unconfirmed as Marlborough College has a policy of never revealing which sons and daughters of famous mothers and fathers benefit from its education.
