Entry into Sixth Form is at age 16. Therefore, girls for entry in September 2022 must have a date of birth between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006.

The relaxed atmosphere at NLCS Sixth Form, together with the smaller classes and closer relationships with the teachers, means lessons are interactive and stimulating. The benefits of being a Sixth Former, such as heading up societies, participating in overseas trips, undertaking work experience or using the common rooms makes school a really enjoyable experience.

We admit approximately 20 students each year into our Sixth Form to join pupils coming up from our own Year 11. We welcome girls who bring new approaches and fresh ideas. Our entrance tests and interviews ensure that the candidates are embarking on the right Sixth Form courses and are secure in their background work.

Entrance Tests

Students will be invited for one day of entrance testsThese tests are in the subjects they are planning to study in the Sixth Form, and are based on the common core of the GCSE syllabuses.


Short-listed pupils will be called for informal interviews with the appropriate Heads of Department. 

We will ask your present school for a reference and for GCSE predictions before we call you for an interview. When a candidate is accepted, it is usually unconditionally, on the basis of our tests.

Fee Assistance

In addition to Music ScholarshipsBursaries are available for Sixth Form candidates, in case of financial need. Parents are asked to complete and submit the bursary application form when their daughters are called for an interview. 

Places sometimes become available in the Sixth Form after the entrance tests have been completed. Late applications may be made up to mid-March. Please note, however, that there is no guarantee that places will be available at this stage, and that all financial awards will have been made following the October tests.
