Eton's sister institution, King's College Cambridge, also has a Provost. M.R.
James was, of course, successively both.

(Winchester's sister institution, New College Oxford [recte The College of St
Mary of Winchester at Oxford  - but called "New College" to distinguish it from
the other St Mary's College] also has a Warden. Other titles for college heads
are Master [Mistress], Dean, President.)
