Five of the schools in our Top 10 are highly-successful grammar schools from Trafford, one of the few local authorities which maintains a selection system for brighter pupils-
Talk about setting the "less bright kids " up to fail. I failed my 11+ because my maths wasnt up to standard ,however my English,History and geography classes I was always in the top 10%. How sad that the kids who excel at some things and not in others fail the 11+ and get sent to schools that are substandard across the board. Thank god my parents sent me to an out of area school (Lymm) so I could recive the decent education i deserved.
