I don't know how it is in the UK for education but I tend to feel it's precisely the opposite here. Public school has the metal detectors in a
growing % of cities, criminal actions being committed daily up and down the whole education system and serious felonies, not just petty theft, while
it gets worse to budgets being cut and more.
Private schools here have to operate in a competitive environment and if they don't deliver an education worth the cost, parents won't deliver
children with the tuition checks.
I looked into putting my son into private school and we tried everything we could imagine to find a way.....but with his special needs in particular,
one school would have him. The best we could get for a rate when last we checked was $20,000 per school year. That was almost 2/3rds of my gross, not
net, annual income as a trucker working 90 hours a week to earn it.
Sometimes money does talk and that price told us we could only dream.
