Could anyone list any parts of the UK which have both grammar schools and reasonably good comprehensives? We are aware that we're going to need to move house at some point before dc hit secondary school, and want to give them the best chances - i.e., a stab at a grammar school, but failing that, a reasonable non-selective secondary within catchment.
We're happy to consider any areas really although we are not rich, so sadly, areas close to London are going to be off limits for us.
FWIW, I don't think I stand a cat in hell's chance of convincing Talkinpeace that she misunderstands the educational provision in my county; I merely hope to clear up any confusion for anyone else seeking advice on moving to the area (whichever way round - hoping it's fully selective or that it's not. It's not).
