The debate about the merits and demerits of grammar schools is as old as grammar schools themselves.

Meanwhile, opponents claim this creates an atmosphere of favouritism and prevents social mobility, cementing future educational opportunities based on an aptitude test children take at the age of 11. With Theresa May planning on re-introducing grammar schools by the end of the year, we thought we’d put together a fun quiz so you can give the 11-plus test a go! Can you meet the admission criteria for grammar school?
