Hi everyone just looking for opinions and experiences on the cost of children going to grammar school. I'm a single mom and work part time so not well off. My daughter has passed entrance exam with quite a good score and only practiced a week before and like any parent would like her to have the best education she deserves but I'm worried that a grammar school will cost loads and my daughter will be out of place?
A big WELL DONE to your daughter. She is a star, and she is obviously meant to go to the grammar school, so send her there come **** or high water. Grammars were set up for children from families such as yours and it makes my heart sing, to hear that someone who really deserves a place will get one. As the other post says it will all cost the same, grammars are state schools just like uppers and comps. The only thing to look out for really is increased bus fare if it is not your closest school, but as the other poster said, you will probably get help with this if your income is low. Good luck with it all.
