I feel there's too much attention to how "good" schools are, and not enough to their importance in building communities

I have an instinctive belief in local schools and a real suspicion of free schools and academies. I have 4 daughters aged 14, 11, 9 and 7 who are all thriving at school. I've recently become a community governor at the secondary school that my 2 eldest girls go to - Swanlea School - and am keen to build this school's reputation, especially among parents of girls.
