* Eton College is an elite English boarding school famous for its many successful alumni. Nineteen British Prime Ministers,Princes William and Henry, numerous foreign royals and all manner of celebrities are counted among the Old Etonians. Fictional Old Etonians include characters as diverse as James Bond, Captain Hook, and Bertie Wooster.
* Harrow School is Eton's main rival and has similarly illustrious alumni, such as nine British PMs (including Churchill), many foreign heads of state, and many celebrities. There are considerably less fictional Old Harrovians than Old Etonians, but there are a few such as Nigel Thornberry and The Scarlet Pimpernal.

* The famous British private BoardingSchool Eton College tends to produce examples of this trope in the upper reaches of government, with recent Prime Minister UsefulNotes/DavidCameron and his Chancellor of the Exchequer being alumni. Many of them were ''also'' part of the same college fraternity, the infamous Bullingdon Club.

* Because [[ExtranormalInstitute Beacon Academy]] is so central to the plot of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', {{Fanon}} commonly portrays [[TheMentor Ozpin]], [[CoolTeacher Glynda]], and [[BigBad Cinder]] as having been students there. [[note]]This theory was jossed when it was revealed that Cinder was much younger than what the fandom thought. Nowadays, such fics are less common.[[/note]]

* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] and [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series, in that the District has very few schools, including the Free School in Beechbourne, so that the local folk tended to attend the same schools; and as for the County, the gentry, the peerage, and a good chunk of the clergy, well ''naturally'' the local cricket match between Old Etonians and Old Harrovian bulks large every year, and very senior men get excited every year over the Boat Race. (Such persons as the Rural Dean, who went to school at Marlborough and then to university at Durham, lampshade, regularly, how tiresome and juvenile this is: only to be ignored by Old Etonians, Old Harrovians, Oxford men, and Cambridge men.) All the same, that the Duke went through his prepper, Eton, and Oxford with the Archdeacon, and through Eton and Oxford with HH the Nawab, and that there's a lampshaded "Keble mafia" in the Diocese, ''is'' TruthInTelevision for Britain even now.

* '''Series/{{Smallville}}'' has a main character who is ''in'' high school, it's no surprise that a lot of the characters are going to school together. However, the writers thinking "hey, wouldn't it be cool for Character X to have a cameo" turned it into this for the DC universe as a whole (okay, some of them aren't actually going to that particular school, but they're around and they know each other).

*** Three other contemporaries from Oxbridge (Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie) who moved in the same loosely interchangable circles and who might well have become Pythons themselves took a related direction when their groups finally coalesced: they became Series/TheGoodies.

* Creator/MarvelComics and Creator/{{Wildstorm}} Studios tried doing this during the short-lived ''ComicBook/HeroesReborn'' {{reboot}}: they had [[Comicbook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]], Victor von Doom, [[Comicbook/IronMan Tony Stark]], [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]], and [[ComicBook/AntMan Hank Pym]] studying together at the same college, even going so far as to call themselves the "Knights of the Atomic Round Table" before breaking apart. Reed and Doom (and Ben Grimm) all went to State University in the normal Marvel Universe, as well. This State U is located in upstate New York, it is not to be confused with Empire State University, the university in lower Manhattan attended by Peter Parker and others.
