More House School 11 Plus (11+) Entrance Exam Information » 2021/2022 Entry

11+

Introduction

 

More House School is an independent day school for girls in London’s Knightsbridge. Founded in 1952 by a group of parents demanding better education for their daughters, the school features a broad cultural mix despite its Catholic heritage. [1] [2]

 

The academic life at More House is a vibrant one, mostly due to the extensive educational provision which includes lessons for psychology, Digital Skills, MFL, Classics and design, among others. The belief that every child has a gift is firmly embedded in the school’s philosophy, hence staff approaches teaching enthusiastically, energetically and creatively, employing various techniques to help students retain knowledge. 

 

Through a range of enrichment activities, the school enables pupils to surpass their potential and acquire firm friendships along the way. The majority of clubs are initiated by the students themselves, targeting unusual interests such as Mandala and Japanese culture & language, in parallel with more common ones, such as fencing, dance, hockey, the DofE Award and yoga. [3]

 

To explore the world around them and maximise their cultural, aesthetic and academic versatility, girls take day trips to art galleries, museums and science fairs, organised by the school on a regular basis. In general, More House successfully caters for a thorough exploration of different social, scientific and creative concepts, ensuring that the students leave school with an awareness of their competitive qualifications.

More House School 11 Plus Admissions Criteria

 

As one of the 14 member schools that make up the London Consortium, More House School follows its Agreed Code of Practice for admissions. Year 7 admission is determined by the candidate’s performance in the school’s entrance test, which is taken online. As part of the admissions process, there will also be an interview.

 

More House School offers places based on applicants’ performance in the entrance test, interview, and the quality of their current-school reference. This means that Year 7 entry is not determined by performance in the entrance test alone.

More House School Year 7 entry, 11 Plus Assessment

 

The London Consortium has replaced its bespoke Cognitive Abilities Test with an online test called the ISEB Common Pretest. This test will assess your daughter’s skills in the areas of English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning through multiple-choice questions.

 

The More House 11+ exam will not include written assessments, as the Pretest alone will provide the school with information about your daughter’s current attainment and potential.
