Our local school really does cater for children from all backgrounds and of all abilities

Our eldest daughter goes to our local secondary Patcham High - it doesn't have the best results in the city but it's improving all the time, has a fantastic Headteacher and staff and really does cater for children from all backgrounds and with all kinds of abilities and talents. It is a very happy school, with a real heart to it, and we have felt privileged to send our daughter there. I'm afraid, seeing how parents responded to the changes introduced in the admissions process in our LA a few years back, I am convinced parents running schools under the 'free schools scheme" will be disastrous. I cannot see parents being able to run an educational institution objectively and my guess is that their intake of children will be anything other than "comprehensive".
