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 announced a £50 million fund to support grammar school expansion - and that’s just for 2018-19.
At least 35 grammar schools are applying to expand this year, creating places equivalent to seven new selective schools. No one is assessing the impact on schools and communities and this expansion plan is being pushed ahead with absolutely no thought or care for the majority of learners, their teachers and school leaders.
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, 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.

The selective system is inefficient. It has been shown that some children are selected at 11 years who later do not achieve the academic level expected.
