Could Lincolnshire's grammar schools expand?

Grammar schools have all but died out in the East Midlands. Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire no longer have any - although some schools still carry the name.

But in Lincolnshire 15 schools still admit pupils based on results of the 11 plus exam.

Current legislation dictates no new grammar school can be built in the UK. But earlier this year Kent County Council voted to allow one of its grammar schools to expand onto another site. So could the same thing happen in Lincolnshire?

Graham Burks, head teacher at Kesteven and Grantham Girls School, believes it would be interesting to set up a satellite school, but said he can't see it happening in the short term.
