Notting Hill and Ealing High School (NHEHS) is an independent school for girls, located in Ealing, London. Founded in 1873, NHEHS is part of the Girls’ Day School Trust and is recognised nationally for its academic excellence. In the 2019 Times School League Tables, NHEHS was one of only 10 schools to appear in the top 20 for both their GCSE and A-Level results and it was named the TES Senior School of the Year in 2021. [1]

In 2022, 92% of their A Level entries were awarded A*-B grades and 81% of their leavers secured their first-choice university. In the same year, 92% of GCSE entries were awarded grades 9-7. [2]

With a long history of educational excellence, academic life at NHEHS is supportive, fulfilling and fun. With an array of excellent facilities and a team of dedicated teaching staff, students are encouraged both inside and outside the classroom. From Year 7, the three sciences are taught separately and students are able to choose two modern languages to study. At GCSE and A-Level, students are given the opportunity to study Greek, psychology, economics and more. [3]

With over 130 co-curricular activities on offer, there are plenty of opportunities outside of the classroom for your child to find their passion and become a balanced all-rounder. Students can join a sports team, perform on stage in a drama production, immerse themselves in a musical pursuit or challenge themselves with something completely new. [4]

Admissions information for 2024 entry to Notting Hill and Ealing High School at 11 Plus (11+)

The school strongly recommends that prospective students and their parents attend one of Notting Hill and Ealing High School’s open events. NHEHS’ next open event will take place on 15 June 2023. You can book and find out more information about this event on the NHEHS website. Please ensure you book this event early, as places tend to fill up quickly.

This will give you and your child the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the facilities, meet the staff, and ensure NHEHS is the right choice for you. 

Notting Hill and Ealing High School is a part of the London 11+ Consortium, which means it uses the same entrance test as all the other schools that belong to the consortium. Admission to NHEHS at Year 7 is selective and is determined by the student’s performance in this assessment.

Your child will also be invited to an interview at NHEHS, to help the school identify which candidates would benefit the most from attending the school and to gather as much information as possible from each candidate. The interview typically takes place in January of the entry year, but information and specific dates can be found on the school’s website closer to the time. 

Places for Year 7 are allocated based on the student’s performance in both the entrance exam and the interview, as well as a character reference from their current school.

What is the entrance 11 Plus (11+) exam format for Notting Hill and Ealing High School?

The entrance exam is 100 minutes long and it is split into five distinct sections: 

  • Maths: 20 minutes. Based on the National Curriculum for Year 5 and will not test anything on the Year 6 curriculum 
  • Non-verbal reasoning: 10 minutes. Assessment of the candidate’s ability to identify patterns and think logically 
  • English comprehension: 20 minutes. Piece of fiction, written especially for the Consortium exams. No extended writing is required 
  • Verbal reasoning: 10 minutes. Assessment of a candidate’s ability to identify the correct use of standard English in context
  • Break: 30 minutes 
  • Puzzles and problem-solving: 15 minutes. Tests the ability of candidates to use words and numbers to solve multi-step problems 
  • Creative comprehension: 25 minutes. Candidates have to use information from a variety of different sources to answer questions 

The first part of the test, up to the break, is adaptive. This means the questions are tailored to the child’s performance. 

The second part is non-adaptive, meaning all the candidates will have the same questions. The English comprehension passage will also be the same for all candidates, but the questions will be adaptive.
