Lucky you,Frank, where I lived only 5 percent of boys could go to the local Grammar school as that was all the room there was in it. The rest of us had to go to Secondary Moderns. Fortunately all of those in the town encouraged us to stay on and take O levels and A' levels and actually did better than the Grammar school.
You could actually get a Bursary for uniforms.
