Tutors and Saturday Schools are ‘helping students into private schools’
Parents are investing a lot of time and money in ensuring their children are accepted into top private schools.

It refers to the case of ten-year-old, whose parents have put her on an intensive 18-month programme to make sure she passes her 11-plus exams.

“I am doing the best for my child, helping her strive towards her dreams. At the moment she wants to be a vet and I want to help her achieve that,” commented her mother, 39-year-old Rebecca Bailey.

She even acknowledged that she would pay for the school fees in whatever way possible, even if she had to sell some of her personal possessions.

The Guardian revealed that in some cases, 20 children or more are battling for each independent school place, with private tuition seen as the difference between passing or failing.
