Post Eleven Plus Pressure

Being an Eleven Plus parent is not always easy.

Some parents are over ambitious for their children.

Some parents underestimate their child's ability.

Some parents are happy with their lot - and don't mind if their child does attend a grammar school.

If your child is obviously bright and able - and doing well at school - then grammar school is certainly an option. After all you do not want your child to be bored and frustrated at school.

Some `non grammar schools', however, are obviously able to cope with very bright children. All is not lost if your child does not pass the examination - or does not choose to attempt the eleven plus tests.

The last thing most parents would want is for their child to earn a place in a grammar school by hard work and considerable effort - and then find that there is too much academic pressure.
