North London Collegiate excels academically. The school offers both A Levels and the International Baccalaureate. The Head is very keen on the IB model, believing that an education which is a mixture of arts and science will give NLC pupils the skills they need for the modern workplace. She is currently trying to create links with businesses which will assist the girls’ with their future careers. NLC pupils come from a vast array of different cultures and the school has a very international feel about it. It has recently opened sister schools in Dubai and South Korea, and two more in Singapore and Bangkok are to open shortly.  NLC pupils will have the opportunity to visit and go on exchanges with these overseas branches. The school is highly selective academically. At 11+ there approx. 65/70 places on offer with over 500 applicants. The other 46 places are offered to girls from the Junior School. The entrance exam consists of maths and English papers written in-house and is followed by a 1:1 interview. A child’s Head’s report from her current school is extremely important and NLC is not looking for a specific model of pupil, they want ‘quirky, teachable girls’ with a range of different interests and talents.
