There are around 140 places available at 13+ and typically between 40 and 50 pupils join Mill Hill at 16+ in the Lower Sixth.

For Candidates Resident in the UK

Parents considering 13+ entry for their child are encouraged to follow the Early Testing track when their child is in Year 6; applications must be made by the end of October, references are requested in November and there is an Assessment Day in November comprising computer-based tests in Reading Comprehension, Verbal, Non-verbal and Numerical Reasoning. There is also an interview and a small group activity.

We also have a number of 13+ places available to candidates currently in Year 8; applications must be made by the end of October of the year preceding proposed entry, with references requested in November and an Assessment Day in December, comprising examination papers in English, Mathematics, Science and French, with the option of Latin. Individual interviews are held in January preceding the proposed date of entry for those candidates who perform sufficiently well in the entrance examinations.

16+ UK Entry

Sixth Form candidates are encouraged to apply in the Autumn Term of the year preceding entry, and are generally required to have a minimum of 2 A and 3 B grades (or the numerical equivalent) at GCSE, with some subject-specific requirements. We request confidential references and predicted grades from candidates’ schools, and based on this information, those who appear to be most likely to be academically suitable are invited to interview. Offers are made to successful candidates, conditional upon achieving the required GCSE grades.

A wide variety of Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries are available to candidates resident in the UK.

We encourage prospective pupils and parents to visit the School – either on one of our Open Mornings or by special arrangement for a personalised tour.

For Candidates Resident Overseas (13+, 14+, 16+)

Candidates resident outside the UK should first contact the Admissions Team to check availability of places, and should submit their two most recent school reports which will enable us to advise on the suitability of their academic profile. Suitable candidates will be advised to register and arrangements will be made for testing either at Mill Hill School or at an approved agency overseas, including the candidate’s current school.

For 13+ and 14+ entry examinations will be taken in English (or English as an Additional Language), Mathematics and Science and an interview will be conducted either face-to-face or by Skype for candidates who are successful in the written tests.

For 16+ candidates (Sixth Form) who are not following a GCSE curriculum, or who require a CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Study), examinations will be taken in English (or English as an Additional Language) and, depending on subject choice, further tests in the subjects for which they are applying to study at A Level. For those following GCSE courses who do not require a (CAS), successful candidates will receive an offer conditional upon specified GCSE grades, and will be required to sit entrance tests.
