    We couldn't afford to go to private school and my parents didn't feel that the benefits outweighed the fees.
    When you say you couldn't afford it, do you mean your parents weren't earning enough at the time to be able to pay for it, or that they have other expenditures that have to come first?

    I know several people with children who earn the same sort of amount who send all their kids to private school, so I'm just a little surprised to hear that it was unaffordable.

    state school=/=worse than private. It can and often is, but is not a given unless we're talking about the old public schools.
    I know that.

    I was just asking why his parents chose state school instead of private. He's replied that it was to do with the high cost of private schools rather than his state school being better.

    Although in the city I come from, it's a pretty well established fact that the best performing schools academically are mostly grammar schools.

    We didn't feel that its was worth the money, we would have been able to pay but it would take up a lot of our income. I personally think I wouldn't have benefited from a private education. I got into a good uni, got good A Levels and enjoyed my time at school so I'm pretty happy.

    My dad owns a company and earns between 20-30 grand each month. I go to a state school though, however he has instead given me several opportunities in order to give me life experiences and we have been to many parts of the world.
    I agree, interesting life experiences trumps spending £££ on private education in my opinion
