Comprehensive Schools

The majority of state schools in England are comprehensives, which  are state schools that admit a cross section of students from the community with a range of academic abilities. Schools with other titles, such as trust, community, academies, voluntary aided can all be comprehensive schools. Grammar schools cannot.  They are selective according to ability.

How does this affect your choice of school?

It is likely that the majority of schools you can consider for your child are comprehensive schools. Depending on the location and catchment area, a comprehensive school will give your child experience of mixing with a variety of people.
