Here are the 2024 Brit Award nominated acts who went to private school

Jolly hockey sticks and pop bangers?


The Brit Awards is coming up this weekend, and with the whole private school ho-haa with The Last Dinner Party’s so-called out-of-touch comments in the Times newspaper, it seemed apt to see which other nominees went to fee-paying schools. Obviously, when you think of The Brits you think of the secondary school attached to the biggest night in British music. However, with leavers like Adele, Amy Winehouse and many, many more, it’s actually free to attend. Without further ado, here are the 2024 Brit Award nominees who went to private school.

The Last Dinner Party
