"Grammar schools were embroiled in a row over cheating last night amid claims that children are being coached through the 11-plus.
Scores of parents have lodged complaints after it emerged that record numbers of pupils in Warwickshire had gained 100 per cent in entrance tests.
It is claimed copies of 11-plus papers are being circulated among private tutors, who can improve their reputation by helping pupils into top grammar schools.
The allegations, which are centred around entry to three schools in the county - Alcester Grammar, King Edward VI Grammar for Boys and Stratford-upon-Avon Grammar School for Girls - come at a time of increasing competition between parents over the best state secondary schools.
In Warwickshire, 950 children sat the 11-plus in October for just 240 places at three grammar schools.
It has emerged that the same eight papers from the education company Moray House have been used in rotation for almost 20 years, and many parents allege they have fallen into the hands of tutors.
Last night Warwickshire county council, which administers the exam for the three schools, said it had investigated the claim and found no "concrete evidence" of cheating. It had scrapped the eight papers for admission next year as a precaution and would be writing a new test, it added."
