The grammar schools wanted the Pupil Profile. Lest anyone be in any doubt about the motivation of Sir Kenneth Bloomfield, Wilfred Mulryne, Kevin Donaghy or John Young this information makes clear that their collective intention was to replace academic selection with social selection.
Parents, pupils and former pupils have been betrayed. So have thousands of primary school pupils now denied the equality of opportunity afforded by the current system using the 11-plus.
