The plans for post-war secondary education in Britain aimed to remove the inequalities which remained in the system. The proportion of ‘free places’ at grammar schools in England and Wales increased from almost a third to almost half between 1913 and 1937. However, when poorer children were offered free places, parents often had to turn them down owing to the extra costs involved.
Most LEAs aimed to establish the three main ‘streams’ or categories of school – grammar, secondary modern and technical – which had been recommended in a Report by Sir William Spens in 1938. Children would be allocated on the basis of an examination at the age of 11, known as the ’11 plus’. This was intended to provide equal opportunities for children of all backgrounds.
