For 11+ entry in September 2021
Girls born between 1 September 2009 - 31 August 2010
Our application deadline is Wednesday 18th November 2020. Please ensure you upload a photo of your daughter's passport. We will then register all applicants for the ISEB Common Pre-test.
Applicants will sit the ISEB Common Pre-test, a 2.5 hour, computer-based test, with sections on verbal and non-verbal reasoning, English and Maths. Applicants must sit the test on or before Friday 15th January 2021; it should be taken at her current school or at any other school she has applied to (provided that the school offers the ISEB Common Pre-test). Otherwise, she is welcome to sit at South Hampstead on 5th or 6th January. The test is designed to identify potential as well as attainment; no special preparation is required. Familiarisation materials are available on the ISEB website.
In order to gain a complete picture of each prospective pupil, the interview will be a critical tool in our selection process. This year, we have committed to interviewing all applicants. At the interview, we aim to put girls at their ease whilst also challenging them. This approach enables us to identify whether a pupil will truly thrive here, academically and otherwise. Interviews will take place between 25th and 30th November.
Places are offered on the basis of performance in the ISEB Common Pre-test and interview, as well as the reference from the current school. Candidates will also be asked to provide details on the impact of school closures, and any other relevant circumstances, on their education. Offers are made on 12th February, followed by an Offer Holders’ Event on 22nd February; the deadline to accept is noon on 3rd March.
