North London Collegiate Independent School Selection Process
Entry into Year 7 is at age 11, therefore girls for entry in September 2019 should have dates of birth between 1st September 2007 and 31st August 2008.
We attract all types of personality, and there is no typical North Londoner. We don’t use rank orders or labels, and there is a strong commitment to the individual. Your daughter might be shy when she joins us, but whilst here she will develop a relaxed self-confidence and a bond with the School that lasts forever.
In addition to based on academic or musical ability, Governors’ Bursaries are available for candidates in case of financial need. Parents are asked to submit the relevant forms for Governors’ Bursaries when their daughters are called for interview.
All girls entering at 11+ will take an Entrance Exam consisting of written papers in English and Maths. The examinations are held at the School and are completely separate from those of Group 1 and Group 2 Consortium.
Following the Entrance Exam, a number of girls will be invited back for an interview, and from these, the final selection will be made. Interviews are friendly and informal, it is a chance for us to get to know each girl a little better. Interviews are incredibly important at NLCS, and we ensure that the whole process is run as smoothly as possible.
Practice and Perseverance Over Genius and Talent
