John Stanley, headteacher of St. John's Catholic Comprehensive School
in Gravesend, speaks out in this video about the destructive effect of the grammar schools in the area. His eloquent words about the potentially dire situation his brilliant schools is facing amount to a desperate plea for the Education Secretary to stop grammar schools from expanding. This is something that Comprehensive Future
are campaigning to stop; please sign up with them if you feel strongly about the issue. As you will see in the video, it is harming the education of ALL the children in Kent, which is one of the few local authorities in the UK that runs a fully fledged 11+ exam.
