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.
