Private schools should end their "splendid isolation" and work with state schools, according to England's chief inspector of schools. Sir Michael Wilshaw said that the sector has a moral obligation to help raise standards in state schools. "The conferment of privilege should not denote exclusivity but an implied duty to help the wider community," he said.

Let me guess how manywhich private schools Sir M Wilshaw has been to... umm! One? Wellington College?

Wilshaw calls for end of private school "splendid isolation" - what could state schools learn from these ivory towers?

@GarthStahl

Michael Wilshaw's comments about private schools are ridiculously uninformed. Yet another attempt to blame others for the state's mistakes.

At last! Wilshaw says to end private school "splendid isolation" - should be hurried along with end of charitable status.
