    I read in an article on a diff site that some universities (nottingham was named) do not favour grammar school students. So, i was just wondering who goes to a grammar school and which.

    With this government in power I'm sure everyone who has had what Labour would term "an unfair advantage" including grammar school pupils can expect to be discriminated against.

    Yes I know. And if you read my response I made no contradictory comment. Bright people go to grammar schools, and rich people go to public schools. I know that is a HUGE generalisation and I don't take it to be true my self, but a Labour government will. A Labour government hates people who are 'lucky'. Fact.

    Please read my comments before trying to make me out to be a fool.

    no, i got to one. good school - well mostly

    You still have to pay to go to a grammar school? NO YOU DON'T

    wtf, i went to Manchester Grammar for a yr, and my dad had to pay, i passed all the entrance exams but still had to pay

    Are you sure that wasn't a private school? As far as i know, all Grammar Schools are state schools which means you don't have to pay. I know i dont have to

    You DO have to pay, I know for a fact RGS Newcastle charges, but it's still a grammar school.

    theone - I live in Buckinghamshire which is one of the only major grammar school areas in the country and no-one has to pay. If you do pay to go to a grammar school it must be a private one, not a state school

    How was i wrong? All state grammar schools you do not have to pay. You only have to pay if it's a private school

    The term 'grammar' used to mean a selective state school, ie it was free.

    Some private schools call themselves grammars because they are ither selective, used to be state grammars or just like the name.

    It is confusing, but all real grammars are free.

    ps, there are some state selectives that don't call themselves grammar schools, even though they are. They are selective and free.

    There are many private schools that call themselves grammars, like Queen Elizabeth Grammar School near me.

    Thank you Lord H. I was trying to say that but you just explained it better than me! All 'real' grammar schools are free
