Queen’s College London 11 Plus (11+) Entrance Exam Information » 2021/2022 Entry
Table of Contents
Queen’s College is an independent school for girls in the City of Westminster, London. Established in 1848 by theologian and social reformer Frederick Denison Maurice, it is considered the first institution in the world to award academic qualifications to women. Furthermore, Queen’s is the first girls’ school to be granted a Royal Charter for the advancement of women’s education. 
The College’s rich history and strong heritage is reflected in the broad and innovative syllabus, which covers everything from Classics, MFL and art to computer science, PSHE and Thrive. Thrive was introduced into the educational provision with one main goal: to secure the welfare of every girl through a number of mental health, pastoral and well-being initiatives, and is already one of the curriculum’s greatest strengths. 
Offering an impressive range of extras, Queen’s is comprehensively invested in providing all students with the best possible foundation for all-round growth. The range of clubs spans across a vast number of pursuits, including choir, gardening, Psychology Society, Poetry Club, orchestra, chess and taekwondo, maximising girls’ awareness of their own abilities and facilitating a passionate quest for further interests. 
Through community service initiatives, the school encourages altruistic behaviour and helps girls build character traits that serve them well in the years to come. Ranging from bake sales to volunteering, the variety of activities aims to awaken students to the responsibilities of citizenship and the importance of giving back, at the same time helping them recognise the many benefits that come with good education.

Queen’s College London Year 7 entry, 11 plus Assessment
The London Consortium has replaced its bespoke Cognitive Abilities Test with a computer-based test which assesses English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. This test is called the ISEB Pretest and it covers questions in English comprehension, arithmetics, problem solving with words and thinking with shapes, space, diagrams and pictures.
The 11 plus exam at Queen’s College does not include written assessments. The Consortium has implemented this new online test 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 and parents will receive test results in February.
