The deadline for registrations is 30 November 2018 and the examination for entry into Year 7 in September 2019 will be held in January 2019.
Notting Hill & Ealing High School is part of the London Consortium (previously known as the North London Girls’ Schools’ Consortium). Currently comprising twelve independent girls’ schools, the London Consortium will set the same test paper, share results and have common dates for releasing results and deadlines for acceptances, with the aim of making the applications process simpler, for both pupils and parents.
For 11+ entry in September 2019 onwards, all schools in the London Consortium have refined the application process, replacing the previous English and Mathematics entrance examinations with a one hour bespoke cognitive ability test. This rigorous new test has been designed to identify academic potential and reduce the reliance on arduous preparation. The test can be taken, in January 2019, at any of the schools in the London Consortium to which an application has been made. Further details including sample materials will be published here as soon as they are available.
In order to gain a complete picture of each prospective pupil, we will continue to use the interview as an important part of our selection process helping us to identify pupils who will thrive, academically and otherwise, at NHEHS. Interviews are usually held in January/February. At NHEHS we interview all applicants. Places will be offered on the basis of performance in the cognitive ability test and interview, as well as the reference from their current school.
The results of the entrance procedure will be posted to parents in early February 2019. Those wishing to accept the offer of a place must notify the school in writing, by the deadline date given. Once a place has been offered and accepted a deposit of £1000 (non-refundable) is payable to confirm the place.
