Pupils that gain entry to a grammar school will automatically find themselves in a working environment that suits them. This comes from the entrance exam and the fact that schools can select students based on their own specific exam. Many argue that this leads to higher levels of education and a learning habitat that suits a child’s needs.
The above argument naturally leads to a school, as a whole, getting better results as they are given the chance, at point of entry, to ensure that they have a cohort capable of exceeding their predecessors.
In The Week the point was put that “Selective education supporters often point to the list of high-achievers who were taught at grammar schools, including Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Margaret Thatcher, Anthony Hopkins, David Attenborough and Alan Bennett.” and this is a strong argument to prove that they are more successful than not, with many successful people coming from grammar education. But not everyone thinks so.
