I'm not sure about the schools you've mentioned above but because they're highly selective, I'm sure the required prep would be similar to other selective schools in London.

I'm currently prepping my ds for his 7+ exam as his current school doesn't prep. We're using bond books - started from age 5-6 and are now on age 6-7. If we remain on track, we should be starting 7-8 by July/August. I was advised (by a tutor who assessed him in December and gave recommendations on what we needed to work etc.) to spend a lot of time reading with my ds, doing some mental arithmetic such as 3x9 etc., begin story writing in July, mathematical problem solving and verbal and non verbal reasoning. She also said we should keep a small diary of interesting words that he learns...these could then be used to help him 'jazz up' a few sentences when he begins story writing.
