For 11+ entry in September 2019
Girls born between 1 September 2007 - 31 August 2008
All schools in The London 11+ Consortium will assess candidates through a 70 minute cognitive ability test. This rigorous new test has been designed to identify academic potential and reduce the reliance on arduous preparation. The test will include questions testing verbal reasoning, mathematical reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. The test can be taken on 11th January 2019 at any of the schools in The London 11+ Consortium to which an application has been made.
In order to gain a complete picture of each prospective pupil, we will continue to use the interview as a critical tool in our selection process. Invitations to interview will be made after the entrance examination on the strength of candidate’s results and school reference. At the interview, we aim to put pupils 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 in January and February 2019.
Places will then be offered in February on the basis of performance in the cognitive ability test and interview, as well as the reference from the current school. We will hold an Offer Holders’ Event on Monday 25th February 2019 at 9.00am if you have any further questions, with a deadline for acceptances at noon on Tuesday 5th March 2019.
South Hampstead is a popular school. Entry is competitive. Girls are assessed via examination, interview and report. We recommend that anyone considering applying for South Hampstead should book a place on an Open Day for a taste of life at the school.
