More House School is part of the London 11+ Consortium which is an association of 14 independent London day schools for girls which operates one exam across the group. The consortium was set up to provide an application process which is fair, clear, robust and accessible to children from all schools and backgrounds.

For entry in September 2023 onwards, the Consortium has introduced a new assessment process which goes beyond testing cognitive ability alone and seeks to discover a child’s potential in creative and critical thinking, analysis, synthesis and problem-solving. The assessment will be 100 minutes in total and include cognitive reasoning, English comprehension, Maths and some creative new components to assess problem-solving and analysis skills.

For further information about the admissions process please visit the London 11+ Consortium website.

This will give you further information on the Consortium itself, frequently asked questions and the code of practice.

The exam can be sat either at your daughter’s own prep or primary school, More House or another school in the Consortium. The date for the examination to be sat at More House is Friday 2nd December. Each Consortium school you have registered your daughter at will have access to her test results and there is no benefit to sitting at one school or another. Your daughter can only sit the test once.

The deadline for registration for entry into Year 7 2023 is Friday 11th November and all exams need to be sat by Thursday 8th December. Once registered you will be sent an entrance test form to find out which other schools your daughter is applying to and where she would like to sit the exam.  You will also need to send us any Educational Psychologists reports by the closing date for registrations.

At More House however, we look beyond exam results and place as much emphasis on her interview and the reference from her current school. Your daughter will be invited to a selection morning or afternoon which will be taking place on Saturday 19th November. For more information on our Selection Day click here.

We offer academic scholarships in addition to Music, Sport, Drama and Art & Design scholarships.  Please see our scholarship programme booklet. There will be additional interviews and assessments for scholarships in January 2023.

When submitting your daughter’s application form for the scholarship she would like to apply for please ensure this is accompanied by a letter of recommendation from the most appropriate teacher at her current school. A limited number of bursaries are offered to girls joining us in Year 7. Please contact our Registrar for more information about this process.

Offers will be emailed out on Friday 10th February 2023 and the closing date for acceptances is 12 noon on Thursday 3rd March 2023.

We recommend you visit us not just once, but as many times as you can. Each time you visit you are likely to speak to different teachers who will fire your daughter’s enthusiasm for a subject or have a tour with a pupil who will be able to tell you about a different facet of school life which they particularly enjoy. Tours can be booked directly from our open events section of the website.

If you are looking for an occasional place for your daughter in a different year group or are perhaps looking for her to join our Sixth Form, please contact me directly to discuss this as we do have a different assessment process.

We look forward to meeting you soon and please do not hesitate to call if you would like further information about More House or to discuss our admissions process further.

Best wishes

Hannah Lee
