I had a small legacy which I used up to give my son(only child) a good foundation (I thought)by sending him to an independent School.Now I have made him sit for the 11+ Grammar School exams but it has been very hard work because he did not know the basics in Maths and English.I manage to improve his maths quite well but not enough time to do English as I work full time. I did complain to the School about the Child not being stretched to the full.And I cannot believe but I am paying for it as well. May be they do not like me because I complain.But despite several letters to the class teachers he does not respond to me at all and the Head is very supportive of her staff.May be they are biased towards me, but I feel very anxious that my child is wasting his time there. They are aware that I have made him sit for the Grammar School exams and hopeful we shall depart but there is no gurantee! but they are getting the school fees and should not give up on a child who might leave.Besides it is wasting his precious time.I have left several messages for the class teacher to ring me but no responce. I feel quite angry but not sure where to send him for the next two terms, also what happens if he does not getting in the Grammar!. Although the present school goes upto the age of 18 I am not sure if I want to leave him there because of the Schools apathy. If it was a good school then may be if he did not get into grammar then I would have worked extra hours to pay the fees. My aim is to give
him one thing and thats good education.I would be grateful for any help in this matter as I feel very let down.
