    I would like to point out that although the original concept of grammar schools was to provide an education for the bright progeny of working class (i.e. poor) this no longer is the case. The overwhelming majority of pupils at state grammar schools come from the middle classes who can afford to pay for their offspring to go to private prep schools or private tutors to carm for the 11+. This is why all state grammars should be forced to become all-ability schools or opt out of state education and become fee-paying if they wish to retain selection.

    I'm sorry, but i disagree with your view of Grammar School people completely. I have never been to a private school in my life, i went to the local primary school, i didnt have a tutor for the 11+, in fact i didnt even take practice papers for it
