Im also from a state school, although wish i could go to a private school. It would have been more interesting if you made the poll so we can see who goes to what.

i went to a private school

just thought it would be interesting to see, especially as there is always the row about number of private/state school students getting into university

I went to state from nursery until year 9. Then February of that year I left and went to a selective grammar, where I am now.

A bit confused - apparently there's a difference between public/private/independent/grammar...

i was at a state primary.....ended up at a private secondary because the state schools weren't all that and the only one I did like I ended up on a waiting list for because there had so many pupils and not enough spaces.

I always thought independent and private were the same thing- you have to pay. Public schools you also have to pay, but these are the top, really posh private/independent schools like Eton, Rugby etc. Grammar is state, so it's free, but you have to pass your 11+ to get in, whereas you don't need anything to go to a comprehensive. Hope that's cleared things up a bit.

But (taking examples I know), the Leeds Grammar School is independent, fee paying, selective... this is what confuses me.
And "Leeds Girls' High School (Grammar School Foundation)" is the same. (Though, obiously, all girls not all boys.

I know guys who go to a school near me which is called "Sutton Grammar", it is a selective, state school, so i think schools just bung in 'grammar' where ever, it bears no relaltion to what type school it is
