Story

We’re fighting to stop this government taking us back to a divisive past in which most children were labelled successes or failures by the age of eleven. Education secretary, Damian Hinds, has just announced a £50 million fund to support grammar school expansion - and that’s just for 2018-19.

This money will almost certainly be used to create more 'annexe' grammar schools, miles from original school buildings: an undemocratic way to get around the law and create new selective schools. This will add to the thousands of new grammar school places, equivalent to 11 new schools, created since 2009.

The evidence is crystal clear. Selective education is unnecessary and unjust. It damages the educational and life chances of our poorest pupils, divides communities and adds very little value, in terms of results, even to those who attend grammar schools.

Comprehensive Future urgently needs your support to challenge the threat of new ‘annexe’ grammar schools. With your help we can step up local campaigning, lobby councillors and MPs and explore all legal means to stop ‘backdoor’ grammar schools being created and ensure an eventual end to the 11-plus.

Your donation will make a difference. Please support our campaign.

      £50 Million to support grammar school expansion is a criminal waste of education funding.

      Keep fighting the 11-plus, it damages our children's confidence and ambition just as they start secondary school.

      Please do everything you can to create a movement to fight this unpopular expansion of grammar schools. There is no real appetite for it in the country.
