Entry at 16+

Each year, we welcome new students into the Sixth Form to join the girls moving up from the Senior School.

Each September we hold a Sixth Form Open Day for girls in Year 11 who are considering South Hampstead. This provides the opportunity to meet our Director of Sixth Form, explore the possibilities of the subjects on offer and see what Sixth Form life is like.

Places are offered based on the entrance examination, interview and projected GCSE grades. The expected standard is high, with offers usually made on condition of candidates achieving at least seven grade 8 or A*s at GCSE.

Applications for entry in September 2019 are now closed. If you would like more information about applying for entry at a later date, including a Sixth Form Art, Drama or Music Scholarships,  please contact
