It just shows how well everyone has done on here even with the increased competition. I think its going to get more competitive in the next 5 years if the economic climate doesn't improve.
Assuming the grammars remain!
If Labour are shedding their 'New' tag and win another term (God forbid!) the issue of the grammars may be resurrected. Even the Tories are lukewarm.
Grammars are already being 'forced' into consortia with other local schools and whilst certain local high schols seem to have benefitted, the endgame is to use the high performing grammars to up the stats for the poorer schools and eventually to let them quietly disappear.
Not that I am a cynic at all..............
