Want Grammar Schools to Work? Then Exclude the Most Well-Off

So grammar schools can have a positive impact on the educational outcomes of children from poorer backgrounds; yet they have not done so at scale, because too many bright, deprived pupils never make it to the schools in the first place, blocked by other students with advantages such as ‘pushy’ parents or tutoring in the entry tests. They then end up consigned to a poorer standard of education and, in the worst cases, written off as second-class students.
