I am a mum of two who has recently guided her children through highly competitive, grammar school, 11+ entrance exams. They both passed for all of the schools they sat for and have received their first choices.
My intention is to inform other parents what the process was like for us and give an honest account of the highs and lows that we encountered along the way.
My children sat both CEM (Durham University) and GL style papers. They did not sit examinations for any private schools, but the information within this blog would be useful for all parents whose children wish to apply for a selective secondary education.
