This chapter reports on social capital within independent schools. It investigates the activities that supported bonding processes within the school communities, and bridging social capital with other independent schools, but not with other young people in the neighbourhood of the schools. The schools were successful in drawing upon the financial, cultural and social capital of the families of those who attend to provide opportunities for young people to link with others across a diverse range of professional opportunities.
