Year 7 Admissions

The Selective Eligibility Test for 2021 entry that was due to be held on 15th September is postponed.

The new date for the SET is Wednesday 11 November.

The Nonsuch & Wallington Second Stage Entrance Examination will take place on Saturday 28 November 2020

This necessary delay means that the Selective Eligibility Test will now take place after the deadline for submission of your Local Authority Common Application Form (31st October 2020). Any questions about this must be addressed to your Local Authority as schools do not have any involvement in this part of the process.


Wallington High school for Girls complies with the co-ordinated Admissions Scheme which is administered by the London Borough of Sutton.  Girls are normally admitted at age 11, when all students must have gained a selective place through the entrance test and placed Wallington High School for Girls on their Secondary Common Application form, in order to be eligible for admission.  There is no guarantee of a place to applicants who meet the over-subscription criteria.

Applications for Year 7 September 2021 open on 1 May 2020.  Please click here to apply
