As demand for places outstrips supply year after year, Anya Waddington investigates ways to avoid the frenzied pressure of the London school entrance system.

No one needs to be told that London schools are vastly over- subscribed. Year after year, the pressure ramps up, as desperate parents resort to heavily tutoring their children, applying for multiple schools as back-ups and paying deposits for more than one school when they receive offers. Many schools don’t cap numbers sitting entrance exams, in some cases allowing in excess of 1,000 children to sit for their schools. Wetherby Prep has responded to this dire need by opening a new senior school for boys in Marylebone. The first entrance exams were in November: already 250 applied for 60 places.
