Low oil pressure indicated by pressure gauge often means wear on engine parts. In your case it might be the crankshaft bearings. I recommend to stop driving the car and repair the motor.

In our area there are a number of good state grammar schools, you pay no fees to go, the standard of education is high, but it is very competative to get in, this year 5000+ kids sat exams for between 90 and 180 places. In order to sit the exams you have to be targeted to get at least a level 5 in all your three SATs exams.

Some of the local private schools will accept you on interview, others also have an exam entry, so you need to be both rich and brainy!! The fees range from about 12,000 to 22,000
