    Theresa May’s resurrecting grammar schools so how would you fare in a test to get in one?

    Theresa May has proposed a shakeup of the education system that could lead to an expansion of grammar schools across England. Many people object to the categorisation of pupils at age 11 on the basis of an exam. But how would you fare in such a test? Here’s a selection of 11-plus questions from sample tests produced by the educational publisher CGP. (To complete all the questions please view on desktop or mobile browsers rather than the app.)

    Shocking accounts of abuse describe an epidemic that schools are failing to take seriously – and it’s not just male pupils who are a problem

    For Maya, sexual harassment started in the very first week on the job. A newly qualified teacher, she had been hired by a prestigious London state secondary school. But what might have been an exciting first post quickly unravelled, thanks to a school-wide culture of misogyny thinly veiled as “banter”, she says, and senior colleagues who began making inappropriate comments about her body.

    “The leadership would say horrendous things that made female members of staff so uncomfortable: [such as] ‘your tits look nice in that top’. I remember a meeting with one of them once, who said things every few sentences, such as ‘if I wasn’t a married man’ or ‘if I was a bit younger you’d be my type’.”

    Former polytechnic beats prestigious neighbour, while Cambridge retains top spot

    Nottingham Trent University has soared 18 places to overtake its better-known competitor, the University of Nottingham, a member of the elite Russell Group, in the 2019 edition of the Guardian University Guide.

    The former polytechnic has had a meteoric rise up the table over the past five years. From languishing in the bottom half, Nottingham Trent moved to 53rd place in the 2017 edition, 34th in the 2018 edition; it is now 16th. This year it has overtaken its competitor for the first time by one place in the rankings.

    As the Guardian reveals its 2019 University Guide, we look at something no league table covers – student wellbeing

    Tips for picking a university

    When Elliot Bush first started thinking about university applications, the most pressing issues were module options and grade requirements. As a teenager, Elliot had experienced mental health issues, such as feelings of anxiety and hearing voices. “But it hadn’t affected my school work, and I was still getting good grades, so I didn’t think about it being a big issue at uni,” explains Elliot, who is now 21.

    News of bigger portfolio than Church of England comes after £21bn in total assets revealed

    Oxford and Cambridge colleges collectively own more land than the Church of England and have a portfolio of properties across the UK worth £3.5bn, a Guardian investigation has found.

    From a Scottish castle conquered by Robert the Bruce and the O2 arena in Greenwich to a betting shop in Brent, north-west London, the land and buildings owned by the universities’ colleges encompass ancient and modern possessions amounting to 51,000 hectares (126,000 acres) – an area more than four times the size of Manchester.

    All Souls College has a large real estate portfolio in London area where 33% live in poverty

    Willesden High Road is a far cry from the dreaming spires of Oxford, but a number of the properties on this street in Brent, north London, are owned by All Souls, one of the university’s wealthiest colleges. All Souls owns more than 300 properties in this part of London, an area where 33% of households are living in poverty.

    The vast majority of the properties are residential houses, but the college also owns the freehold of the Ladbrokes branch. On Tuesday the betting shop had two customers, one watching horse racing and the other tracing his bet at a terminal. The staff declined to comment except to say they were unaware of who owned the site.

    Ex-offenders will no longer have to declare criminal record when applying to university

    Ex-offenders who want to study for a degree may find it easier in future to secure a place on a course after the university admissions service, Ucas, confirmed it was dropping its requirement for students to declare convictions when they apply.

    Until now, former prisoners and those with unspent convictions have had to tick a criminal record disclosure box when applying to university. For many it acted as a deterrent to applying, while others have been refused a place despite satisfying all the academic requirements.
