Sixth form scholarships and bursaries

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

The Sixth Form Scholars' includes:

  • External and internal students joining Year 12 who have been awarded any of the Scholarships below
  • Honorary scholars who have achieved excellent GCSE results
  • Existing Senior School scholars.

Scholarships

The Redmaids’ High School has expanded its range of Sixth Form Scholarships to celebrate this significant period in the history of our two founded schools and to highlight our ongoing commitment to girls’ education and to academically able young women.

For internal and external candidates we offer:

  • STEM Scholarship - science, maths, technology, computing
  • Liberal Arts Scholarship - English, humanities, languages
  • Performance Scholarship - music, drama, art
  • Senior Sports Scholarship - emphasis on the school’s major sports of netball and hockey (although other sports will be considered)
  • Honorary Scholarships - although no financial reward is attached to these, recipients are recognised as scholars, receive a scholar’s badge and take part in academic, extension and enrichment activities, paid for by the school, as part of the Sixth Form Scholars’ Programme.

For external candidates only:

  • IB Scholarship - to reward commitment to the international values and ethos of the IB.
  • Oasis Academy Brightstowe Scholarships - up to two special scholarships are available to girls from Oasis Academy Brightstowe who excel in their GCSEs, scholarship exams and interviews.

Bursaries

A number of means-tested, partially-assisted places may be available to girls joining the Sixth Form from other schools. These are awarded under the John Whitson foundation and the John James Foundation for Bristol Children. As a broad guide, most bursaries offer up to 50% discount on the fees.

'Discretionary Bursaries' are also available to allow girls to continue their studies at Redmaids' High Sixth Form.

The John James ‘Tools of the Trade’ Award

This annual award, worth £1,500, is given to a Year 12 student whose studies incur specific and substantial additional expenses. For example, a musical instrument, travel costs or specialist technical equipment. Each March we invite students to apply to us, in writing.
