    No, why should they give up teachers and places when:
    A) places are massively oversubscribed
    B) Teachers are needed to educate those currently at the school
    it is due to cuts in funding etc.

    Well, considering the school came top of the GCSE league table in 2002, it would be a shame to do such a thing

    Y should they give up teachers and students? The school is trying to fund itself out of debt through fund raising

    Yeah, it is irrelevant but, do not discount the fact that the students do work hard for them and in this day and age, grades sadly determine peoples' success..therefore, giving more students the chance to get those good grades through adequate funding is certainly a positive thing

    Do you agree with grammar schools, or do you think they should be abolished?

    I go to a grammar school, so that may bias me, but I think that they are good. The results at the end (GCSEs) + oppurtunites offered dont seem to differ all that much to comprehensive schools, (and good comps offer more oppurtunites than my school!).
    GCs, however, are excellent because they challenge the brightest kids, in ways comprehensives cannot do because of the sheer range of pupils' abilities in classes.
