It is the only all girls school on the list but that wasn't what I had in mind - there are a mixture of girls, boys and mixed

Dysart nails it
1. farming implement HARROW
2. Reversed message - ETON
3. to store - STOWE
4. racquet sport BADMINTON
5. Biscuit men READING
6. former capital city - WINCHESTER
7. Brownie Bells! - WESTMINSTER (CHIMES)
8. _____ about (anagram) - BEDALES
9. Brown's home -GORDONSTOUN
10. Has left for the war! MARLBOROUGH
and they are indeed all schools

I prefer Dysart's answer to the OOO to mine which is that Reading is the only state school in the list (despite its atmosphere - at least when my brother was there in the 80s - of a pre-war minor public school with a broom cupboard for a prefect's room, boys in suits, a boarding house etc....)
