Why do we award scholarships?
We recognise excellence and strive to stretch and challenge our most able students. We award scholarships to allow access to an education for those whose talent would particularly benefit from this but the fees are beyond the parents’ reach. Our scholarships also help to support the work of our departments in improving provision for all.
Typically, scholarships are worth 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.
