Eleven Plus Dreams

Congratulations to all who have recently passed their eleven plus. We wish the children every success in the future. Do you remember Robert Louis Stevenson’s poem `A Child’s Thought’?

At seven, when I go to bed,

I find such pictures in my head:

Castles with dragons prowling round,

Gardens where magic fruits are found;

Fair ladies prisoned in a tower,

Or lost in an enchanted bower;

While gallant children ride by streams

That border all this land of dreams

I find, so clearly in my head

At seven, when I go to bed.

We can only hope that the successful children forget very quickly the work and effort they had to make. To the children that nearly passed – our most sincere commiserations.

We hope that reading about dragons, magic fruit, imprisoned ladies and brave men helped the children to do as well as possible.
