The assessment process is in two stages. The first stage involves preliminary written tests which assess literacy and numeracy. In the assessments, we are looking to discover what the girls can do, not what they can’t do. For the first stage tests, candidates will be expected to:

  • Write an imaginative story using full sentences and some interesting vocabulary. 
  • Read fluently with understanding and give answers to written questions.
  • Write the answers to these questions in simple sentences. 
  • Understand the concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication and 'sharing'/division and be able to apply these rules in order to solve word problems.
  • Know the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables. 
  • Have a basic understanding of shape, time and money.
  • Interpret simple tables and charts.

Selected girls are called back for the second stage of the process which consists of a day at school, where they will be taught as a class and experience the learning and excitement of a busy school day at North London.

We are looking for girls who have a love of learning and are interested in a wide range of subjects. They need to be prepared to take on new challenges and throw themselves into the variety of activities that are on offer.
