I know Jags and Alleyns do prepare for the 11+ for some extent but I thought part of the appeal was that they dont have to focus on it quite so much as the children either have a guaranteed place (Alleyns) or just need to pass the exam (Jags) rather than coming in the top tranche?

Might the reason for children not getting into the other school in year 6 be that they are not doing as much preparation, or indeed not being prepared by the school as intensely for the 11+ compared to a prep school, as they already have a place at their existing school? Alleyns bent over backwards to accommodate us and we were shown around as a family. I know many private schools have changed radically over last 5-15 years.
