Eleven Plus Choices

I met a girl today who has turned down the chance of attending her local grammar school so that she can follow a different range of subjects at her local academy.

The academy specialises in sport, business and technology.

Her grammar school has a special interest in science.

She explained that she didn’t mind science but she really wanted to do business studies.

Naturally I asked why – and she replied, very pragmatically, that she thought there was more money in business than in science.

Her local academy has a very bright and highly motivated girl arriving in September!

The grammar school has another place to offer.

Every one is a winner.
