  • 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.

Key scholarship dates

  • The deadline for applications for entry in September 2018 has now passed.
  • All assessment material will need to be ready, if you are invited for interview with subject specialist. These will take place before the end of term
  • Sixth Form Scholarship interview with the Headmistress: week commencing 22 January 2018.


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 (download form here).

'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.
