Some of our eleven plus children will have been brought up in an atmosphere where they are expected to develop in an organised and systematic manner. Many parents will hope and pray that their children will adopt a `metronome of routine’ into their eleven plus studies.
Eleven Plus Study
And so on ….
Within the Eleven Plus study period some parents will hope that their child will be prepared to settle down quietly to work on an eleven plus topic or a paper – with out equivocation or prolonged discussion.
Within these parameters children will be expected to develop and grow into studious academics. The eleven plus child will be expected t be ambitious and responsible. There will be no room for any form of discontent or individual disorientation.
The reward for parents is their child has a place in the grammar school.
The reward for the eleven plus child is an opportunity to have an outstanding education.
The price for some children could be a dislike of the `metronome of routine’.
