Staying ahead of the game – the Globalising Practices of Elite Schools

How are elite schools caught up in the changing processes of globalisation? Is globalisation a new phenomenon for  them? This paper focuses on the globalising practices that selected elite schools adopt. It also explores how globalisation is impacting on the social purposes of elite schools, which conventionally have been to serve privileged social groups. It seeks to begin a conversation about whether such schools are involved in securing advantage for social grouping that exists beyond the nation state on the global stage. It draws from a multisited global ethnography of elite schools in globalising circumstances.
