Your comment re scholarship and not accepting one, well let me tell you that in our area there are 23 full scholarships for boys and 23 full scholarships for girls (equating to Â£8,000 per year) until the child finishes A levels and believe you me so many children do not accept them because its a single gender education in the private sector. Many of my daughter's friends have rejected their scholarships and opted for a grammar place, which therefore frees up the scholarship to the next child in the order of ranking!
I am gobsmacked (not sure if I'm allowed to say that, but I will try). Are they means tested? I thought everyone wanted a single gender education in the private sector. I am paying over Â£8k a year for my son to have that.
Where is your area? Jessy
