Update! We look forward to the safe return of some Junior School pupils w/c 1 June, when key worker provision and Guided Home Learning for all other pupils resumes.


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 for entry the following year – an opportunity to meet our Director of Sixth Form, explore 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. We offer Sixth Form Academic, Art, Drama and Music Scholarships as well as Bursary Places – for more information, please see the Scholarships & Bursaries section.

Applications for entry in September 2020 have now closed, but if you would like to make a late application, please contact us at senioradmissions@shhs.gdst.net For entry in September 2021, please apply online below.
