Really? Ooops, I've always told people it's an independent school

Wasn't the term "a truely public school" part of the School's marketing campaign in the late nineties - in that any member of the public could (in theory) send their child there because the school isn't exclusive on the grounds on money unlike other commonly termed "public" schools.
I thought Independent merely meant not a state school.
I think all the terms defining schools got a bit mixed up when they changed from grammar schools and then grant maintained schools and whatever. Blur the edges and people might not notice kind of thing.
Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
