How to apply


We have been providing an exceptional education for girls for over 170 years.


We welcome new North Londoners at:

4+ (40 places)

7+ (8-10 places)

11+ (approximately 60 places)

16+ (approximately 20 places)


We look for students who, in addition to academic potential, will contribute positively to school life through their motivation, intellectual curiosity and willingness to try new things. We admit students from all backgrounds and are committed to providing assistance through bursaries, music scholarships, sports scholarships and Sophie Bryant scholarships in the Senior School when they enter at 11+ or at 16+.

We also admit students at other ages, subject to the occasional opening of a place in a particular year.

The best way to get to know the school is to come for a visit. Alternatively, you can take a virtual tour of NLCS and look around the extensive facilities including the Performing Arts Centre and our beautiful grounds.

“The entrance process was very nurturing, and we were given a high level of personal care from the pupils themselves.”
