You might have thought, on hearing this week that a British girls’ school is going to start setting its 11-year-old pupils a test that it’s impossible to get 100 per cent in, that the teachers have snapped. “That’s it!” I can imagine an anguished denizen of the staff room bellowing. “Give the toerags a test so tough they’ll be begging for mercy next term!” But no. Oxford High School for Girls wants to teach its scholars that it’s acceptable “not to get everything right” and that they shouldn’t be too concerned about being “little Miss Perfect”. Blooming heck, I can’t imagine my old headmistress going for that.
