Joining the Sixth Form

Each year, we welcome new students into the Sixth Form to join the girls moving up from the Senior School. We select girls based on assessment and interview.

There is a single aptitude paper which also includes a short essay on a subject of topical interest or current news event. This is followed by interviews with the Heads of Department in your intended A Level subjects and with the Head of Sixth Form. 

We will also ask for a confidential reference from your current Head Teacher and predictions of your GCSE grades. We cannot process your application fully, or make the offer of a place, until this reference and details of predicted grades have been received.

Offers of places are conditional upon GCSE grades. As a general guide we expect girls to have obtained A or A* grades in their chosen A level subjects, with A or above in the majority of their other GCSEs.

Some means tested bursaries may be available for sixth form applicants. If you wish to apply for a bursary you should indicate this on your application form and we will send you details of the online application process.

For those in joining the Sixth Form at NHEHS in September 2019  our Into the Sixth open evening will take place on 9 October 2018 from 6.00pm. Further details and a booking form will be available here from August. In the meantime, if you have any questions please contact Ms Lauren Smith, Registrar on (020) 8991 2165.
