Submit Application

Our main point of entry is at age 4+ into Reception. Applicants are invited to an assessment in the January of the year of entry.

4+ Entry 2019 – CLOSED

4+ Entry 2020 – Application deadline: 1 October 2019

The assessment is conducted informally, like a playgroup session. Girls work in small groups with a teacher on a variety of games and puzzles in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere for one hour. Successful candidates are recalled for a second assessment shortly afterwards, again to work in small groups with a member of staff for an hour. Offers are sent out on a date agreed by members of the North London Independent Girls’ Schools Consortium.
