Why do we award scholarships?

We recognise excellence and strive to stretch and challenge our most able students across a broad range of disciplines.


Typically, scholarships are worth up to 10% remission on the tuition fees. In certain cases, an honorary scholarship may be awarded and whilst there is no monetary award, girls have full access to the Scholars’ Programme.

How are scholarships awarded and who can apply?

Internal and external applicants in Years 7, 9 and 12 are eligible to apply for scholarships ahead of that academic year. Internal Year 9 scholarships are honorary.

All applicants are considered for an Academic Scholarship on the basis of their performance in the entrance exams or internal assessments.

Applicants are invited to audition for specialist scholarships in one of three main areas specifying the subject in which they are interested.

These are: Performing Arts, Art & Design, and Sports.

Please ensure you have registered prior to applying for a scholarship.
