My lovely ds who I had always assumed was heading for the local comp, had just announced that he wants to the grammar school arhhhh
I'm not really sure where this has come, as when his sister was practising last year for her 11 plus, he was addement we wasn't following in her footsteps, so I thought nothing more of it.
But now with exactly one year to go...and with having just thown out all the 11 plus stuff I have this to deal with. Dont get me wrong, I am really proud of what he wants to do, but this is the tricky bit, I really dont think he is up to it, he has just never had the same kind of work ethos that his sister has...Oh what am I to do.
I really dont want to put him through something that I really dont think he has a chance of acheiving, especially as there is a written exam...he hates to read and write. I think I may just start of with a practise paper and see where we go from there.
Sorry for the rant...wish me luck...maybe he'll change his mind next week ??
