that would mean the consortium schools would effectively come into the same league as bushey academy, francis coombe, westfield (local watford schools that do not have an exam entry requirement), so those parents who object to putting their children through an 11+ process do have local schools as option.
wonder if parents would still feel the same about the schools if entry was based entirely on local demographics?
perhaps we could also abolish the redbridge/essex consortium and also the slough consortium too?
Just for clarity, may I point out that the Redbridge grammar schools and the CSSE - Consortium of Selective Schools in Essex - are nothing to do with each other
. Chelmsford County High School for Girls, formerly a member of the CSSE, now runs its own entrance exam.
