One of Britain's most successful grammar schools is facing a determined attempt to force it to go comprehensive by parents opposed to selection, reported The Independent on Sunday (p10).

The Campaign for State Education will use rules coming into force this month to hold ballots on whether selection should continue in Britain's 166 grammar schools. Case's first target is Queen Elizabeth Boys' School in Barnet, north London.

The school's academic results are high - last summer's A level results ranked it the top state school in London. But CASE questions whether its performance is due to the quality of teaching or whether

selection merely allows it to have the brightest boys in north London.
