At Palmers Green High School for girls in north London,  teachers believe they can judge a child’s ability from as young as the age of two.   At this popular private school,   children barely out of nappies are tested on the 3 R’s before they can be offered a much-coveted place.   Some will be accepted,  and some rejected  -  at the tender age of two.
