Entry at 11+

Each year we welcome approximately 55 new girls into the school to join those moving up from our Junior School. Girls must have reached the age of 11 before 1st September in the year of entry, and will be in Year 6 when they sit their entrance examination.

Applications for entry in September 2023 are now closed. South Hampstead is one of a number of schools in the London 11+ Consortium, which aims to provide an application process which is fair, clear, robust and accessible to children from all schools and backgrounds; further information, including a full list of participating schools, is available on the consortium website.

Candidates who do well in the entrance test will be invited for interview, helping to provide a more holistic picture of whether they will thrive at South Hampstead.
