Entry at 11+ (Year 7)

Girls must have reached the age of 11 before 1 September in the year of entry, and will be in Year 6 when they sit their entrance examination.  Girls applying to start in Year 7 in September 2018 must have been born between 1st September 2006 and  31st August 2007.  The deadline for registrations is 30 November 2017.

The examination for entry into Year 7 in September 2018 will be held on Friday, 19 January 2018.  For testing purposes, Notting Hill and Ealing High School is in Group 1 of the North London Independent Girls’ Schools’ Consortium.  The Consortium schools set common examination papers, share exam results and have common dates for releasing results and deadlines for acceptances.  This reduces the number of entrance tests your daughter will need to sit and makes the application process a little easier for parents.

Girls are tested in English and maths.  We also request a reference from their current school. You can find sample question papers and guidance on the tests by following the Past Papers link in the menu to the left of this page.

Girls will also be interviewed and interviews are held in January/February.  At NHEHS we interview all applicants.

The results of the entrance procedure will be posted to parents on 8 February 2018.  Those wishing to accept the offer of a place must notify the school in writing, by noon on Monday, 5 March.

Once a place has been offered and accepted a deposit of £1000 (non-refundable) is payable to confirm the place.
