    I go to a comp myself, though I have received a couple of offers by Grammar Schools for Sixth Form, however my parents are adamant that I go to public school. Just wondering which schools you people attend. If you have left school could you please still vote in the poll on which you did attend.
    Thanks.

    Comp. Purely because there aren't any grammar schools near where I live and I can't really afford to go to a private school. It's not an issue though as its a very good school and was rated about 25 (I can't remember exactly) for a level results for state schools.

    I go to a Compehensive. I didn't have much choice tbh. There are no grammar schools in Wales, and no nearby private schools. It's not bad though. It's a pretty good school and I don't feel disadvantaged by it being a comprehensive at all.

    I went to a selective grammar school, and if you ask me the country needs to return to a selective system.
