Sixth Form Open Event Monday 21st September Register now to apply for 2021 entry. Free bursary places available as well as Academic, Art, Drama & Music Scholarships.


Entry at 16+

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

In September we hold a Sixth Form Open Event – online this year – 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 8s 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 once you have your GCSE grades. For entry in September 2021, please apply online below.
