Notting Hill & Ealing High School is part of the London 11+ Consortium (previously known as the North London Girls’ Schools’ Consortium). These twelve independent girls’ schools share the same test paper which is taken on the same date in all schools.  The Consortium schools also share results and have common dates for releasing results and deadlines for acceptances.  This makes the applications process simpler, for both pupils and parents.  An individual application must be made to each Consortium school for which you wish to apply. Each school makes its own arrangements for interviews and references. 

The schools are:

Channing SchoolGodolphin & Latymer SchoolNotting Hill & Ealing High SchoolSouth Hampstead High School
Francis Holland (Regent’s Park)More HouseQueen’s CollegeSt Helen’s School
Francis Holland (Sloane Square)Northwood College for GirlsQueen’s Gate SchoolSt James Senior Girls’ School

The test paper is a 75 minute, bespoke cognitive ability test incorporating verbal, non-verbal and mathematics questions. This test has been designed to identify academic potential and further details can be found on the 11+ Consortium website.  The website is where you will also find  familiarisation materials which show the style of the examination and the type of questions likely to be  asked.  These materials are not intended to be an indication of the standard of the examination.
