We have had permission from the forum moderators to place this petition plea.

As you may know, there is a plan afoot to merge St Bernard's Catholic
Grammar school with St Joseph's Catholic High School and thereby
create a non-selective Academy.

No matter which grammar school you are applying to, the abolition of
St Bernard's will reduce the number of available grammar school places
each year by around 140. That means more competition for every

A group of concerned parents has created a web site,
http://www.savestbernards.co.uk containing the latest news surrounding
the merger.

There's also an e-petition on the Number 10 Downing Street web site -
http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/stbernards/. Please sign this
petition and send a message to our lords and masters that grammar
schools like St Bernard's enjoy popular support.

Thank you for your support.

As a parent of someone who failed to qualify for this school in this year, and who has been led like a lamb to the slaughter in a test designed to reduce the number of Catholic children passing the test so that they can prove reduced admissions to category 1 in the admissions policy, I have to say good luck to the head and his merry band of governors as they sell out to the DCSF and the diocese of Northampton.

Final post on the subject of 11+ exams and grammar schools,
