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.
