Information For External Applicants for September 2021

Each year, we welcome new students into the Sixth Form to join the girls moving up from the Senior School.  Our new sixth formers are invited along to special orientation days in July to meet everyone so,  that when you start in September you’ll feel at home. 

We select girls based on assessment, predicted grades and interview. All applicants will sit 30 minute papers in each of their chosen A-level subjects (apart from Art, which is assessed on portfolio).  We will also ask for a confidential reference from your current Head Teacher and predictions of your GCSE grades.  Following the written papers,  we will then select the girls we wish to invite back for interview. 

Offers of places are conditional upon GCSE grades.  As a general guide we expect girls to have obtained 9s or 8s in their chosen A level subjects, with 7s or above in the majority of their other GCSEs.

Academic scholarships are available for the sixth form, as are scholarships in Art, Drama, Music and Sport.  If you are interested in applying for any of these, please tick the relevant box on the registration form and you will be sent a further form to complete. 

Means-tested bursaries are also available for sixth form applicants.  If you wish to apply for a bursary you should indicate this on your registration form and we will then send you details of the online application process.

If you have any questions, please contact Ms Lauren Smith, Registrar on (020) 8991 2165 or email the Admissions Team at admissions@nhehs.gdst.net
