Scholarships & Bursaries

Senior School Scholarships

11+

The 11+ Academic Scholarships are worth up to 20% of the fees and are tenable through to Year 11 in the Senior School. Parents do not have to apply specifically for these scholarships as all girls will automatically be considered on the basis of their 11+ examination results, school report and interview.  Other Scholarships for Art, Music, Drama and Sport are also available at 11+ entry and parents should make an application, in writing, when registering their daughters for entry to Year 7.

A letter supporting your daughter’s Scholarship application will also be required from either their current Head of School or subject teacher.  Please request the letter during the Autumn Term prior to the January examination so that we hold this information on file when the applications are being assessed.  A delay providing a supporting reference may mean that your daughter’s application is not considered.

Scholarship candidates will be contacted once their supporting reference has been received to arrange their Scholarship interview/audition.  The Scholarship interview will be conducted separately to the General interview.  All interviews and auditions take place in January.

Sixth Form

Scholarships and awards for girls entering the Lower Sixth Form are also available and the value of each will normally be up to 20% of the annual fees and will be tenable throughout the two years of A Level Studies.

Junior School Scholarships

One scholarship is awarded at 7+, which has a value of up to 20% of the value of the school fees and is tenable throughout the top four years in the Junior School.  The scholarship is open to both internal and external candidates and results are dependent upon academic performance in an examination and an interview.

Applications for Bursaries

At Queen’s Gate, we celebrate our local community in many ways.  We are keen to welcome all families to apply for a place at the School, regardless of their background or financial circumstances.

A limited number of means-tested bursaries, of up to 100% of the value of school fees, are available to applicants of all ages in both the Junior and Senior Schools.  If you would like to apply for a bursary, you are invited to register and follow our admissions process.  At the point of offer, you will be required to submit a means-tested Bursary Application Form, after which you may be required to meet with the Principal and the Bursar.

Bursary awards are reviewed annually and the school must be informed of any change in circumstances.

PLEASE NOTE : At 11+  we do not require parents to complete an application form or provide any supporting documents for means-tested bursaries until a place has been offered at the School. Parents are welcome to meet the Principal to discuss their interest in fee assistance and if a place is offered to their daughter, only then will they be required to complete an application form and release their personal financial information to the School.
