Hi, since very few (if any!) girls pre-preps go till 7+ only and hence don't prepare for those exams, which pre-preps or state schools would send a consistent amount of girls to Bute House at 7+? Where do they come from? Do they simply switch from the likes of Ken Prep or Pembridge Hall? Or come from state schools in H&F mainly?

There's no feeder, girls come from all over. Bute is VERY down on tutoring and asks you to declare on the application if your dd has been tutored. I think their application process is fairly unique and tutoring won't help much.

Girls come from such a wide area you would not believe - from Islington, Mayfair, Ealing and Richmond on Thames. There is no typical route into Bute.

Thanks!! Any idea what the split is in terms of state/private at the 7+ intake? 50/50 or more private?
