National exams such as GCSEs and A-levels have websites filled with past exam papers and their mark schemes. Unfortunately, entrance exams are published piece-meal by schools and mark schemes are almost never released. On this page I've collected together a few useful exam papers for 11+ and 13+ entrance exams.

*What is the London Girls' School Consortium?

A group of London schools have gathered together for admissions. Since students often apply to many schools, this avoids a situation where they end up sitting for many exams, which is generally considered a bit exhausting and inefficient. Unfortunately, there is not yet a similar system for boys' schools in place.

The consortium is split into two groups, with the following schools in each.

Group 1: Francis Holland, Heathfield School, Notting Hill and Ealing High School, Queen’s College, St. Albans High School, St. Helen’s  School, South Hampstead High School, The Royal School, Hampstead.

Group 2: Channing School, City of London School for Girls, More House, Northwood College, Queen’s Gate School, St. James Independent School, The Godolphin and Latymer School.

The papers are a great resource for anyone looking to improve year 5 - 7 students in maths and English. They are well laid out, clear, and the maths papers can often contain very inventive problems.

Note: As of January 2019, the Consortium has decided to switch to a "one hour bespoke cognitive ability test", so these papers no longer reflect the current admissions process. Nevertheless, they remain an excellent resource for improving numeracy and literacy for ages 9 - 11.
