Having been talking to schools recently (both state and independent) it seems that there is growing feeling that those who have been 'over tutored' are undesirable and unsuitable for a selective school environment. The type that have been drilled are apparently doing less well at work and costing companies lots of money as employers are increasingly forced to deliver training to encourage soft skills.
What do schools know about employers ? Not much ,if they think employers are wasting money retraining staff when they can easily make them redundant,sack them for being incompetent or not hire them in the first place based on the interview/selection process.
Have you got any facts to back up what these schools are supposedly saying ?
Most children attending selective schools have been tutored (either by their parents or tutors). Selective schools aren't moaning about the quality of their intake,their results are good and they get kids into Oxbridge and Medical Schools.
