Hello. Good luck to everyone during the long wait for allocation of school places. I mainly lurk on this forum because I don't want to admit to an ongoing obsession with secondary schools when my DS is only in year 3.
Our nearest GS is Five Ways and DS (who was told about 11+ by other children - I'm not that pushy!) is adamant that it is the only one he would consider as he won't go to an all boys school. Many of his friends are girls and he would miss them! I know it's a way off yet but as both myself and my husband grew up in non grammar areas and went to mixed comps the idea of a single sex school is a little unfamiliar. It seems like there is some evidence to suggest that girls do better in a single sex environment but I haven't read much about the benefit for boys.
Would anyone be able to tell me if there are any mixed sex activities at the local boys grammar schools?
