Bursaries are awarded only to pupils whose performance in the Entrance Examinations is exceptional. All bursaries are means tested and their value is related to the income and financial resources of the pupil’s family. The maximum value of a bursary can be the full published fees.
We aim to assist as many families qualifying for bursaries as possible. However, given the demand, we are not usually able to offer support to all of those who are eligible. Bursary applications must be made online and completed in the autumn term preceding the year of entry to the school.
Further information and FAQs are available in our Bursaries and Scholarships leaflet which can be downloaded via the link below. Do contact our Admissions Registrar Mrs Charlotte Thomson if you have any further queries via firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone the school on 023 9282 6714.
Scholarships are awarded on merit, irrespective of financial means. Offers are made based upon performance in entrance examinations (for academic scholarships) or outstanding ability demonstrated in disciplines such as music (11+ and 13+) drama (16+) and sport (11+, 13+ and 16+).
11+ Academic Scholarships
Each year, we are able to offer academic scholarships to pupils starting in Year 7. These scholarships are not means tested and the small amount of money awarded represents the honour rather than a significant monetary value.
Everyone who sits the entrance examination is eligible to receive a scholarship and it is possible to be awarded a scholarship as well as a bursary. Offers are made based on the results of the entrance examination and a special application is not needed.
13+ Academic Scholarships
Academic scholarships are also available for 13+ entry. Pupils should register their interest via the registration form by the end of the autumn term and sit the school’s entrance examination in the spring term, prior to the year of entry.
Following the examination, short-listed applicants will be invited to the school for an interview. There are up to two 13+ academic scholarships worth a maximum of 5% of annual fees throughout a girl’s school career and they are not means tested.
11+, 13+, 16+ Sport Scholarships
Sport scholarships are available at 11+, 13+ and 16+ to pupils who have outstanding ability in one sport or the potential to represent the school in several sports. Scholars are expected to regularly attend training, regularly contribute to the co-curricular programme and make satisfactory sporting progress.
Pupils should register their interest via the registration form by the end of the autumn term and sit the school’s entrance examinations in the spring term prior to September entry.
