"In London’s comprehensive school system, children from every social background do better than in Kent, which still has grammars." don't improve results!

I failed the 12+. Got terrible GCSEs as a result. Ended up getting a 1st class degree, did MSc at Cambridge, got a PhD in physics. I’m against grammars because by definition, they condemn many academically able children to lower expectations and lower standards.

There is a fundamental misunderstanding that in a selective school community the other schools are comprehensives.

I failed my 11+ and went to a comprehensive school whereas my older brother passed and went to a grammar, yet I surpassed him in both GCSE and A Level grades. If anything going to a non-grammar school made me work even harder to prove a point 🖕

Really glad to hear that is not going to expand - have scored a success by opposing government plans for expansion. Excellent!

I'm finding this programme on really troubling so far. I am relieved, as a parent, not to live in an area with grammar schools, and as a teacher, not to work in an area with grammar schools.

The headteacher in basically admits the system is unfair but says kids should just learn to offset that. Actually a fair system would make sure there are strong top streams in every single school and great vocational provision too, so all kids can thrive.

Kent's 11-plus test is created by who helpfully sell practice papers on their website... The first part of the Kent Test is whether you're a motivated and wealthy parent to navigate all of this! 😲

First of all, no need for inverted commas here. The 11+ is clearly a matter of passing and failing. If you pass the grammar will take you and if you don’t, they won’t. Secondly, it is the first test that children take where the outcome has a direct impact on -

This headteacher creams off all the best kids at age 11. It says very little for the teaching in his school that they then go on get good exam outcomes. All kids deserve a fair go at education.

Head teacher on BBC show says children from poorer backgrounds don't have support from their parents who are considered unambitious. This is both disgusting and insulting stereotyping.

So you told that there was ‘all kinds of research’ to support . I think I can speak for an entire profession when I politely ask you to reference or link us to one single piece of this evidence of which you speak?

Why does this programme keep referring to Erith as a ‘secondary modern’? This term has been out of use since the 1970s.

Watching BBC2s Grammar Schools: Who will get in? Struggling to understand what’s wrong with encouraging kids to work hard to succeed? What IS wrong is letting them believe that it’s the be all and end all. That’s up to the parents

Please! Please! Please! If you want to comment on this documentary do not talk bad about the students. You really and truly don’t KNOW the students by watching their day compressed into an hours video.

I passed the 11+, went to a grammar school, got 13 GCSEs, then I got cancer and everything turned upside down. This exam does not determine the rest of your life.
