Admissions Process

Please note that the 11+ exam process for 2019 entry is currently being reviewed by the North London Independent Girls' Schools Consortium but remains unchanged for girls registered for 2018 entry. 

STEP 1: MORE INFORMATION

Request a prospectus and information booklet via our website - request a prospectus here.

STEP 2:  CONTACT US  

To arrange a visit to the school, speak to our Registrar, Mrs Julia Barnwell - 0207 235 2855 or office@morehousemail.org.uk. We also hold a very popular “Open Evening” during every Autumn Term – this will be advertised on our website during the summer holidays and early reservations are strongly recommended, as numbers of visitors are limited.

We recommend that you visit us when your daughter is in Year 5, or in the early Autumn term of Year 6. Your daughter must be registered by the Autumn of Year 6, for 11+ entry. The 11+ entrance exam for 2018 entry will take place on Friday 12th January 2018.

Coffee Mornings

These get-togethers are more informal and give prospective parents a chance to meet our teaching staff and view exhibits of the students academic and creative work. The Head will be present to give a short welcome address and answer any questions that arise.

STEP 3: REGISTRATION

Year 7 - As we are a relatively small school, it is advisable to register during the summer term, the year before admission is sought i.e. register during the summer term 2017 for admission for 2018/19. After we have received the completed registration form, corresponding fee payment, 2 photographs and a copy of the students birth certificate or passport, your application is confirmed. An examination form will then be circulated to all parents asking where their daughters are booked to sit their entrance exam, whether any special needs exist and whether Bursaries and/or Scholarships applications have been made.  

All other Year Groups – Parents are invited to contact the Registrar immediately, to ascertain if there is a vacancy in the desired year group and if so, proceed to book a private tour as quickly as possible before the place is filled by another applicant. The Headmistress will also need to contact the pupil’s current school and request that a confidential report on her is made available to us, along with confirmation that there are no outstanding fees owed.

During the latter half of the autumn term, all prospective pupils who have duly registered at More House, are invited for a “Taster Day”. There will be a variety of fun classes for them to participate in and during the morning there will be a short 15 minute informal assessment with the Head. All pupils are encouraged to bring along an item of interest, a hobby or a piece of work they are particularly proud of, to discuss with the Head.
