Mixed age classes

Next year, due to falling roll, we will have some mixed age classes.

Does anyone have experience of them? Is it effective? How should it be done to be most effective - should classes be composed of the best from the younger year, and the worst from the year above, or should it be more mixed, with consideration for ethnic background, sex, and other issues?

Is it popular with parents, or will it take a lot of effort to "sell" it to them?

Any comments welcome.
