Hi, I know many of us cannot even contemplate the F word
, but to pre-empt the classic 11+ failure label on innocent children, we must be proactive
The reality is that we are more likely to be in the 3600
who do not scrape through, due to 1001 good
reasons, than the lucky 120
So, is there life after the 11+ for the 95% hard working unlucky majority?
Well, let me do what I can to help, before emotions reduce me to a wreck on results day
In the LB Newham, there is the fantastic London Academy of Excellence
in Stratford. It has tutors from amongst the top fee-paying schools in England e.g. Eton & Brighton, along with Forest & City of London etc. It has high level contacts with top professionals in their fields, who have the wisdom & foresight to ensuring that the talented poor of benighted East London, do not go astray & contribute to wider society. This country will need all hands on deck in order to survive against the likes of India & China.
The top 5% of children will be assisted to realise their full potential e.g. Pushing towards fast track Oxbridge scholarships for the most able & deserving candidates. The catchment area will be Lbn & the surrounding boroughs.
Recently, a friend's ds was given the option to go to ICHS or LAe, I recommended the latter, due to a combination of relevant factors.
So, to recap, all is not lost, there are alternatives
. Good luck, especially to the guys caring & sharing on the forum!
