11+ Entry Joining Year 7

Girls join us from a range of primary and prep schools, and the best way to discover if this is the right school for you is to come along to one of our virtual Open Days. You can book a place on an 11+ Virtual Open Day HERE

We are a member of The London 11+ Consortium and follow its Agreed code of Practice. Girls applying for Year 7 entry sit the London 11+ Consortium entrance examination in January, prior to entry in September the same year. We will also contact a candidate’s current school for a reference. We are very mindful of the disruption many pupils have experienced due to school closures as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and we will be asking the primary and prep schools to outline the educational provision available during the lockdown. We would like to reassure parents that we will be carefully considering how this has impacted each individual girl to ensure that candidates will not be disadvantaged by the different levels of provision the schools were able to provide. The entrance exams are designed to spot academic potential, rather than specific knowledge, and those who do well in the entrance test will be invited to attend an interview, so that we can get to know them better and assess whether Godolphin and Latymer is the right school for them.

Application to Godolphin and Latymer is a two-stage process: parents may register their daughters at any time using the registration form below. In cases of particular need we may be able to waive the Registration Fee; please contact the Registrar.

From October, prior to the January examination, you will be sent an Examination Entry Form so that you can confirm if you are sitting the examination at Godolphin and Latymer or at another consortium school. Both the registration form and exam entry forms must be returned promptly, the deadline for 2021 will be issued in due course. We regret that late applications cannot be accepted.

We are very happy to receive applications from students with individual learning needs.

This will usually take the form of a letter from a doctor or an assessment report completed by an Educational Psychologist.
