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.

All applicants will sit 30-minute papers in each of their proposed A level subjects.  Those whose papers look promising will then be invited back for interviews with the relevant heads of department 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 (or the equivalent) 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 2020 our Into the Sixth open evening takes place on 1st October 2020. If you would like to visit the school, please book onto this event via our Open Days page.
