Stratford is also a prosperous market town with a wide variety of local and national chain stores, fine restaurants, inns and public and private schools. The most famous school in Stratford is King Edward VI school, which is where William Shakespeare is believed to have studied. It is an all-boys school, and one of the few schools which selects its pupils using the Eleven plus. There is also an all-girls selective school, Stratford-upon-Avon Grammar School for Girls, in Shottery, a short distance out of town.
