Question Time?

Just spotted Boston Grammar School for Boys in The Times table of all state schools, some way below Deepings Comprehensive.

When an all-comers Comprehensive that loses some of its most gifted potential students to the 11-plus achieves better "A" levels than a selective Grammar School, isn't it time to ask questions?

whether or not we should have the eleven plus at all these days is a bigger issue...

one step at a time Tom...here in Lincolnshire the Conservative county council still pays out £2 million a year to send a few children to a private school (see my archived blogs for more...)
