Nonsuch High School for Girls is part of Sutton’s Coordinated Admissions Scheme. Entry to the school is determined by pupil performance in the Selective Eligibility Test (SET). With 210 places available in Year 7, the school encourages prospective students and their parents to attend one of their open events, which usually take place in July.

Parents are advised to thoroughly read Nonsuch High School for Girls’ strict admissions policy before taking their daughter’s application further.
Parents who wish to register their daughter to sit the SET (part one) must complete a Supplementary Form initially, which can be found on the school’s website when registration is open. Only one form needs to be completed, even if you are applying to more than one school in the Sutton area.

Should your daughter pass this test, you must include Nonsuch High School for Girls on your Local Authority’s Common Application Form (CAF) to be eligible for consideration for a place.
