Having visited a huge number of London Day Schools, LEH stands out as that unicorn school that you didn’t think existed. It seems to offer everything; in the words of the Head ‘embarrassingly spectacular facilities;’ excellent academic results without being too high pressured; a diverse collection of girls from different cultures and social strata’s and a single sex education which also has many of the benefits of a co-educational one. Hampton School for boys is in the next door building and the two Heads work closely together to ensure the girls and boys collaborate in musicals, choirs, charity initiates and careers services. Competition to get in is unsurprisingly steep, with 400 applicants at 11+ for approximately 70/80 places. The other 35/40 places got to girls coming up from the Junior School. It’s a 50/50 split with the new intake coming from state and private. The entrance exam at 11+ consists of Maths, English, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. There is also an interview.
