Fully comp for 20 years, thanks;Letter

Your front-page item "Grammar school battle commences" (TES, June 18) once again declares that Surrey is involved in a fight to abolish grammar schools. I can only assume that you believe that Kingston and Sutton are still part of Surrey, whereas Surrey has been fully comprehensive for more than 20 years and doing very well.
