North London Collegiate School (NLCS) aims to develop confidence and aspiration in a warm and safe environment, encouraging its pupils to be resilient and ‘bounce back’ when faced with challenges or disappointments – in other words, a sense of ‘grit’ and determination.
It enjoys a beautiful setting, situated in 30 acres of parkland that combines rural beauty with the convenience of proximity to London. Facilities are first class and include a performing arts centre and dance studio, dedicated music building and drawing school. Sport is played to a high level with girls representing at both county and national level.
There are approximately 60 places available for 11+ admission to North London Collegiate School (NLCS). They are looking for girls who, in addition to academic ability and potential, will contribute positively to school life through their motivation, intellectual curiosity and willingness to try new things.
NLCS suggests that all girls considering applying for an 11+ place attend a ‘Taster Morning’ held in the Autumn term. They give girls the opportunity to try out life at North London Collegiate School for the morning and participate in activities in a number of different subjects.
Taster Morning sessions are only available to girls sitting the 11+ entrance exam for Year 7 entry in the following academic year, as they will be participating in school year group appropriate lessons.
The Headmistress will also give a talk to parents and a panel of staff and current students will be available to answer questions. Parents will be given a guided tour whilst the girls are enjoying their taster lessons.
You must register your interest in attending a taster session by completing this online form.
Open afternoons are available for those families looking further ahead. These events are designed to give prospective families information about NLCS and their admissions process. Again, you should register you interest in an open afternoon, by completing this online form.
Registration is open from June to November of the year preceding entry. Check here for current dates and deadlines.
11+ girls will be required to take papers in maths (1 hr 15 mins) and English (1 hr 20 mins – including comprehension and two writing exercises).

Girls who perform well in the exams may be called back for interview. Interviews are friendly and informal. They are a chance for the school to get to know each girl a little better.
Scholarships and Bursaries
Both academic scholarships and bursaries are available. Academic scholarships are based solely on the entrance examination results at 11+, with awards made on academic merit irrespective of financial means. There are no special scholarship examinations nor do parents need to apply for a scholarship. The value of scholarships is up to 50% of fees and is valid until the end of a girl’s education at NLCS.
Bursaries are also available and are related to the income and assets of a family. Values range from 10% – 100%.
