End selection at the age of 10

Selection at the age of 10 is where students are split between grammar schools and secondary moderns, this split being decided by the 11+ test. We know this test separates students along the lines of whether or not they are on Free School Meals, or whether they have additional needs. That’s why we support moving to a comprehensive system for the 163 grammar schools remaining in England and the grammar school system in Northern Ireland. This would also convert existing secondary moderns into real comprehensives with comprehensive intakes.
