There are arguments on both sides of this issue.
Some people believe that going to a grammar school is better because these schools are known for having high academic standards and a strong emphasis on traditional subjects like math, science, and language arts. These schools often provide students with rigorous instruction, challenging coursework, and the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills.
On the other hand, some people believe that attending a comprehensive school is better because these schools offer a wider range of subjects and extracurricular activities. Comprehensive schools often give students more opportunities to explore different interests and develop a well-rounded education. They also offer more socialisation opportunities, which can benefit students' emotional and mental well-being.
Ultimately, the decision of whether to attend a grammar school or a comprehensive school depends on a variety of factors, including the individual student's strengths, interests, and educational goals.

We're almost certain you will be happy with your choice of teacher, but if the first lesson is not a success, for whatever reason, you will not be charged for the lesson and we will immediately look to find you an alternative teacher.
