Scholarships and bursaries

Our scholarships are available to young women who show true potential, a dedication to learning and a lot of ambition in any subject

Scholarships are available for entry into Years 7, 9, 10 and 12 for both internal and external candidates. They may also be considered for exceptional students entering at other stages. 

All applications for scholarships and bursaries must be received by the set deadline. All dates will be confirmed later this year.   

Note: Internal students applying for Year 9 awards will be pre-selected by the Head of Year and Deputy Head Academic in light of their performance in the Year 8 summer term exams, practical assessments and interview. 

Academic scholarships

We award a number of Academic Scholarships to the top-performing girls in the Year 7 and 9 entrance exam. All girls sitting the exam will automatically be considered for awards. No means-testing is involved.

Applicants applying by the deadline will be guaranteed an interview with the Headmistress prior to the entrance examination.  

Sport scholarships

We award Sports Scholarships to students who show significant potential in one of the school’s main sports. They are likely to play at club and/or area level and have the potential to play at regional / national level. The deadline for applications for September 2018 entry has now passed.

Music scholarships

We award a Year 7 and Year 9 Major Music Scholarship offering discount of up to 50% off the general tuition fees and may include free tuition on up to two instruments in school. A Minor Music Scholarship covers the cost of tuition on up to two instruments in school and possibly also a reduction in the general tuition fees. 

To be considered for these awards, your Year 6 daughter should play to Associated Board Grade 4 (or equivalent) – although she does not need to have passed any formal music exams as we assess potential as well as current level of performance. Your Year 8 daughter should be at Grade 5/6 (or equivalent). Read more details of the Music Scholarship Auditions here. The deadline for applications is Friday 12 January

Bursaries 

The unique founding origins of Redmaids’ High mean we can offer a number of fully and partially-funded places. As a broad guide, most bursaries offer up to 50% discount on the fees, although we do have two fully-funded places available each year (see below).

The assessment of a family's means takes parents' income and the value of capital assets into consideration. More information on applying for a bursary is set out in the Bursary Policy (download form here).

Special awards (Year 7 only)

For those joining at Year 7, two 100% funded places – the John Whitson Award and the Florence Edith Rowbotham Award – are available.

The John Whitson Award is a means-tested, 100% scholarship given to a girl who can demonstrate academic ability in the Year 7 Entrance Examination and who would be unable to attend Redmaids' High School without this financial assistance.

The Florence Edith Rowbotham Award provides a 100% fully funded place. It is awarded at the discretion of the Headmistress (on the basis of wider criteria) to a girl who has done well in the Year 7 Entrance Examination. Parents are invited to contact the school to discuss any special circumstances.

Headmistress awards

In addition to the awards above, we offer up to ten Headmistress Awards to girls joining Year 7 who excel in one area of the entrance exam, or who show particular potential.
