Higher education in England dates back to the at least the 11th century with classes being taught at Oxford. In the intervening six centuries many prominent leaders passed through the hallowed halls of the ancient universities of Oxford and Cambridge. It was here that the Puritan leaders who would found Boston and Harvard were educated and, like the grammar schools, based their New World designs for education off of the Old World’s.
