City of London School for Girls



In their own words

City of London School for Girls is an independent day school for pupils aged 11-18 situated in the heart of the Barbican. Opened in 1894, the school provides an outstanding education for able students from all backgrounds, cultures and faiths.


We capitalise on our location to attract students from all over Greater London and beyond, and give them access to every learning opportunity our capital has to offer.

Academic yet unstuffy, modern yet acutely aware of its history, diverse yet with a strong sense of identity, our school defies easy categorisation.


This is best demonstrated by our unique geography, nestled between the brutalist Barbican and looming Roman walls. Ours is an intellectually edgy, unassuming and unpretentious environment, unshackled by tradition, and imbued with a relaxed excellence. This is a refreshing and modern place in which to learn.




The school uses the CEM Select entrance exam to assess admissions. CEM Select includes particular questions types, covering Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Mathematics, often paired with a CEM English paper. It is particularly important to practise the Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning modules, as the precise type of question varies across different exam boards.


We work with the test experts at Ready Steady Pass, to bring you the most accurate and best value CEM Selet practise material. These exams are audited by AQA and EdExcel exam markers, and ISI independent school inspectors. Tests are taken online, include unlimited resits and emailed results including answer sheets to share with tutors and parents.


Each individual exam contains a full CEM Select experience, covering Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning; and includes a CEM style English exam as standard. Buy the Bundle or Complete Collection to get the best value for money.
