Notting Hill and Ealing High School (NHEHS) Admissions Criteria


Notting Hill & Ealing High School is part of the London 11+ Consortium. All the schools that belong to the Consortium use the same entrance test.


Year 7 is the usual main entry point to NHEHS’s Senior School and admission is determined by student performance in the entrance test. The school also requires prospective pupils to attend an interview as part of the Year 7 selection process. This interview, which typically takes place in January, aims to help the school to identify who will benefit most from attending NHEHS.


Year 7 places are offered based on student performance in both the entrance exam and the interview, plus a character reference from their current school will be taken into account.


For further information on NHEHS’s Year 7 admissions process, please contact the Admissions team on 020 8991 2165 or email.

Notting Hill and Ealing High 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. The test assesses Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning and lasts around 2.5 hours. The English section lasts 25 minutes, the Maths lasts 50 minutes and the VR and NVR sections last 36 minutes and 32 minutes, respectively.


There will be no written assessments. The Consortium has implemented this new online assessment to identify pupils’ overall academic potential, rather than their ability to retain knowledge for a particular exam.


Students can take the test at any school in the Consortium, or any other school that uses the ISEB Common Pretest.
