what i meant was the could hardly have picked a worse example of a local school
Most Secondary Moderns in deprived areas are pretty shocking.
Exactly, I think that is the whole point. Children from the same primary school could finish up at either secondary school depending on the results of an exam taken at age ten. Apparently teachers are leaving Erith School "in droves".
The whole of Bexley and neighbouring Kent/Medway are full of grammar schools that take 25%+ of the local cohort and secondary moderns
Erith School is perfectly typical of the secondary moderns across that area
There are a few better ones, not many
There are plenty worse, some far worse
or about 20 others..
Not really, unless the families move area.
Most from that school will end of up at one of two grammars, or one of about 3 or 4 Secondary Moderns. The two that were shown were very much representative of their ilk in the borough. They were chosen as they will form a MAT together from next year.
