14+ Candidate Resident in the UK

Candidates for entry at 14+ (Year 10) are assessed by interview and written examinations in English, Mathematics, Science and French; applications should only be made after initial enquiry to confirm availability.  Sample papers are available on request.

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, A = 7, B = 6) 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.

Please contact Angela Hedger, Assistant Registrar (UK), for further information: 020 8906 7923,

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 then submit their two most recent school reports, which will enable us to advise on the suitability of the 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+ (Year 9) and 14+ (Year 10) entry examinations will be taken in English as an Additional Language and Mathematics. 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.
