I think the reasoning is that we start counting 1, 2, 3, so and and so forth. So starting on the ground, would be 1, but starting at 0 does make sense as well

It is the ground floor. The first is always the one floor above Ground floor!

UK public schools date back centuries, they are called public because they were open to those who weren't royalty but still rich, hence public. The name has just stuck.

@peachypersimmon public school is the same as private, Eton is a public school. 'State school' is the usual term for any non-fee paying school, or academy now those exist as well.

The first floor one is pretty autistic. Why would the first floor in the sequence not be called the first floor?
Does a one-story building have no first floor?

It depends on what you consider One storey building. If it's just the floor on ground then, no.

Because it's the floor on the ground maybe? Hence why the floor above would be the first floor as it's the first floor above the ground. And a building wouldn't be one storied because it'd need to have at least one story above the ground and would therefore be a ground levelled building.
