North London Girls' Schools' Consortium

Information for parents

For the purposes of 11+ entry procedures the North London Independent Girls’ Schools have formed a Consortium. Within this Consortium, certain schools have grouped together (group1 and group 2) to ease administration by having their entrance examinations on the same day. Schools in the same group set common papers using the same mark scheme.


Francis Holland (Clarence Gate), Francis Holland (Graham Terrace), Heathfield School, Notting Hill and Ealing High School, Queen’s College, St. Albans High School, St. Helen’s High School, South Hampstead High School, The Royal School, Hampstead.

Group 2:

Channing School, City of London School for Girls, More House, North London Collegiate School, Northwood College, Queen’s Gate School, St. James Independent School, The Godolphin and Latymer School.


Haberdashers’ Aske’s Girls School, Elstree.

St. Paul’s Girls’ School.


Please contact each school for which you wish your daughter to be considered requesting an Application Form and any other relevant information.

N.B. You must complete a separate application form for all schools to which you apply, even if they are in the same group.

The individual schools to which you have applied will then process your application and send you any necessary information. You are strongly advised to attend Open Days at all the schools to which you have applied and you should ring each school early in the Michaelmas Term for the dates and times of Open Days.

On your application form you will be asked to state at which school you wish your daughter to take the entrance tests. She will be given equal consideration by all the schools in the group to which she has applied, regardless of where she sits the tests.. Please note that she may only sit tests at one school in each group.


A reference will be requested from the Head of the candidate’s school prior to the entrance test


The Consortium schools make their own arrangements for interviews. Queen’s College interview all candidates before they sit the entrance examination.


These will be made available to the other schools in the Consortium. Each of the schools to which your daughter has applied will then consider whether or not to offer her a place on the basis of the tests, interview and school reference.


Offers will be sent out to parents by all schools in the Consortium. Some of these may be for a place on a waiting list. Information about position on the waiting list is not given. All girls on the waiting list are considered to have qualified for entry should a vacancy arise.


Acceptances must be received by the school at which you wish to confirm a place. If no reply has been received to an offer of a place by that date, it will be assumed that you do not wish to accept.
