the evening hour that strives homeward
THE VIOLET HOUR

Stanmer Park College, school for the elite, for the children of privilege and impeccable breeding; home, in fact, of the modern aristocracy. Its halls are filled with sophistication, an age-old element from the days it first opened, hidden away in the shielded village of Stanmer, on the outskirts of Brighton, England. It has always assumed a stance of superiority to the city that lies so near, and Brighton has been no stranger to the visits of the Elite students from the school - and as a result, there has been conflict. For nearly as long as there has been Stanmer, the students and the residents of Brighton have been at odds, the easy-going town not particularly fond of the alleged superiority of this elite, and the students not at all fond of their social position being challenged. But this conflict has never been a loud one; it has been present in scoffs, looks, avoidance and a few snide remarks when one group encountered the other, but for the most part, neither side has paid too much attention to the other. But times are changing.

The change takes place within Stanmer Park College, where the hire of a new Headmistress at the school has brought about a new arrangement: Scolarship acceptance. No longer will lineage and societal standing alone determine who enters the halls of Stanmer Park College; from now on, students from all levels of society are able to gain acceptance - provided, of course, that they show promise in Art, Science, Math, English, all the various fields of study the school provides. Scouts have been sent out to schools around the world to look for these most promising students, and now, both scruff and poise are filling the halls.

The Elite students, of course, are none too pleased with this change, nor are their families, and even the residents of Brighton will have to deal with this change of scenery. How will the conflict be affected? Will it escalate? Will it spread? Or will these changes have positive effect on this school so heavily influenced by the traditional values of aristocracy, and its relationship with the community that surrounds it? Maybe both, maybe neither, but what is certain is that Stanmer Park College will never be the same again.
