YEAR 6 TRACK ASSESSMENT FOR 2023 ENTRY

Parents considering 13+ (Year 9) entry for their child should follow the Early Testing Track when their child is in Year 6. Applications must be made by 13 November 2020.

Given the challenges posed by COVID-19, adjustments have been made to our Year 6 Track 13+ entry for the September 2023 assessment.

The CEM Select Test, previously sat at Mill Hill School, will be replaced by the ISEB Common Pre-Test which will be taken in the candidates’ own Prep School in November 2020.

For candidates whose school does not conduct ISEB testing, arrangements will be made for this to be done at Mill Hill School.

For candidates who have missed the opportunity for Year 6 testing, please see details below of chance vacancy applications.

For candidates whose family is resident overseas, please see details below.

There is limited availability of 13+ places for candidates applying through the ‘chance vacancy’ process.

Candidates are invited to sit a computer-based entrance examination at Mill Hill School in the Spring Term, 2021 (date and details of testing to be confirmed). The examination results combined with school reports and references will enable us to create a ranked waiting list. This will inform our decisions about potential offers.

By the end of the Spring Term, we anticipate being in a position to confirm whether your child has qualified for the waiting list, and their position on it.  A clearer picture of availability will have emerged by the Summer Term 2021 when any offers will be made.

If you would like your child to be considered for a chance vacancy, please click here to complete the registration form. All applications must be completed by Friday 13 November, 2020.

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 two 7 and three 6 grades 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 attend one of our Open Events, or if possible to visit the school by special arrangement for a personalised tour.

For 16+ candidates (Sixth Form) 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.
