What should a good secondary school offer?

Tell us the difficulties you're facing in deciding what's best for your 11-year-old's education. What should a good secondary school offer? Jane Garvey takes your calls and emails.

As the deadline for picking a secondary school looms we want to hear from you about choosing a school for your 11 year old. What should a good secondary school offer and how do you find the best one for your child? If you're looking round schools now, what's top of your list?

Is it all about exam results or is the atmosphere more important? Are you keen for your kids go to a faith school or one that just caters for girls or boys? How do you think State schools compare to what's on offer at in the private sector? If you're a parent who's heavily influenced by your own experiences or a recent school leaver give Jane Garvey a call on 03700 100 444 or e-mail the programme via the Radio 4 website.
