The majority of the independent (or private) schools in the UK are selective to different degrees.  Generally the schools that appear in the top 100-150 schools listed in the league tables are highly selective and will also offer scholarships and bursaries to attract the brightest students.

Most independent schools use their own individual selection criteria and entrance exams so local knowledge is just one of the things we consider when selecting a tutor for an entrance exam assignment.  Schools may use a combination of verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests provided by third parties as well as English and maths papers set by the schools themselves.

We have tutors throughout the country so their knowledge is local and useful and they can combine preparation for grammar school and independent school examinations.  They will also be able to prepare your child for a face to face interview where this is relevant.
