North London Collegiate
North London Collegiate School educates girls between the ages of four and eighteen. The independent day school has entry points at 4+, 7+, 11+ and 16+. It opened in 1850 but relocated to its present day Edgware site in 1940. An extensive coach service means pupils from across London and the home counties can attend.
Exam results are among the best in the country. A near-perfect 98 per cent of GCSE papers were graded at A or A* in 2013. Almost half of its A-Level grades were A* in the same year.
The school has produced some internationally renowned names in its time. Actress Rachel Weisz and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour are among its most famous former pupils.
