Eleven Plus Without the Fuss
Anita Hill, Tim Hill
A guide for parents about Secondary School education options in the north-east Surrey area.
Secondary school selection has never been so complex. The range of schools – academies, faith schools, voluntary-aided, free schools, etc. has never been greater. In addition, competition for places at academically selective state grammar and independent schools is higher than ever.
This book is a groundbreaking step-by-step guide to help parents navigate the maze of choices. Supported by articles written by parents, head teachers and inspectors, issues such as ‘how to choose a school’, single sex or co-ed, state or private, the Prep School system and Common Entrance, bursaries, scholarships and recognising a learning difficulty are covered objectively and sensitively. Children’s development, emotional and spiritual well-being are recognised and a whole section is devoted to help parents keep it in perspective!
