More House School


School Name: More House School
Description: Catholic Independent Girls’ School
Acceptance Ages: 11+


More House School was founded in 1952 and a Catholic independent girls’ school located in London’s Knightsbridge. The school gives its students the opportunity to learn in a caring environment; one that is full of challenges, but low in stress.

The school aims to foster spiritual growth among its students, while developing each girl’s potential, due to its deep-rooted religious heritage during her school life. Students are divided among four houses: Canterbury, Iona, Santiago and Walsingham and remain in the same house throughout their stay at the school. Houses will be part of a number of competitions throughout the academic year and girls can choose to participate in different extracurricular activities including drama, music and sport.

More House School Admissions Criteria

More House School is one of the 12 member schools that make up the London Consortium, following its Agreed Code of Practice for admissions. Year 7 admission is determined by student performance in the school’s entrance test, in January of the year of entry.

In the autumn term, all registered applicants for a Year 7 place will be invited to the school for a taster day. Together with various classes, applicants will have a short, informal interview with the school’s headteacher and are encouraged to bring an item of interest, a hobby or a piece of work they are particularly confident of to discuss
It is the policy of The London Consortium to offer places based on a student’s overall performance in the cognitive test, interview, and reference, which means that Year 7 entry will not only be determined by performance in the examination.

More House School Year 7 entry, 11 Plus Assessment

The London Consortium replaced its traditional eleven plus exam with a bespoke Cognitive Abilities Test which evaluates Mathematics, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. This test has been created for the London Consortium by the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM). It’s worth noting that the CEM definition of Verbal Reasoning includes question types, such as comprehension, that you would usually find in an English test.

Some of the questions will be in a multiple-choice format and students will be required to mark their answers on a separate answer sheet. The test lasts for approximately 75 minutes, with a 30-minute break midway. CEM tests tend to consist of shorter timed sections, each focusing on a specific question type. These sections are then taken in a mixed order rather than one subject after another. For example, a 5-minute Verbal Reasoning comprehension section could be followed by a 10-minute Mathematics LNR section, followed by a 6-minute Verbal Reasoning cloze section.

There will be no other written assessments. The Consortium implemented this new cognitive test to identify pupils’ overall academic potential, rather than their ability to retain knowledge for a particular exam.

Students can take the test at any school in the Consortium and parents will receive test results in February.
