Theresa May's former headteacher Kate Curtis, astonished with Prime Minister's plan to increase grammar schools
theresa-may Kate Curtis the head of Wheatley Park School, is astonished with her former student Prime Minister Theresa May's plan to increase the number of grammar schools reports TES. Final plans are expected to be announced in October however early reports indicate 20 new grammar schools will open with a focus on middle-income families. The plans forgrammar schools are unlikely to be nationwide. Ms Curtis argued that reintroducing selection at 11 was not the answer to promoting social mobility in the current school system and instead there were other more effective ways this could be achieved. "I am astonished that Theresa May, having made some bold and optimistic statements about privilege, is considering selection of children at age 11 as a way of promoting social mobility," Ms Curtis told TES. "I hope that once she has looked at the evidence she will reconsider." The Prime Minister won a place at Holton Park Girls' Grammar School, which became Wheatley Park comprehensive school during her time there after merging with the local secondary modern. Ms Curtis does not agree with increasing selection. "Of course we all understand that the identification of a high-achieving child at age 11 can be the starting point for a great journey into opportunity, and this is an exciting prospect for anyone in education," she said. "But why do we need to build a wall between that child and the next, who is not...or, crucially, not yet, such a high achiever?" "The greatest source of inspiration in education is the student who surprises us, defies expectations and races ahead...those surprises may in future be limited to the few who get through to the grammar schools, while others will be less likely to aspire, to dream, to be taken to new horizons." Ms Curtis said that as society needed more skilled workers, the education system must strive to ensure everyone was highly educated. "The best comprehensive schools offer all that a grammar school can provide and more; this is what will help to make our country a place of growth, opportunity and cohesion and avoid the risks of division, privilege and limitations," Ms Curtis added.
