Scholarships, Awards & Bursaries

Academic Scholarships and Subject Awards at 11+                                                       

Academic Scholarships and Subject Awards, for which internal and external candidates are equally eligible, may be awarded to candidates who perform well in the 11+ Entrance Examination in Mathematics and/or English. All pupils sitting the Entrance Examination on Saturday 15th January 2022 will be considered for these academic scholarships and awards.

Academic Scholarships and Awards may be offered to the candidate or candidates who have, in the opinion of the Headmistress, achieved a high standard of attainment relative not only to the other candidates but also to the standards set by the School.  If no candidate meets these requirements, then the School may decide not to offer any Academic Scholarships or Subject Awards.

Additional Scholarships and Awards at 11+

Your daughter can apply for any number of scholarships but a candidate is unlikely to be awarded more than one.

Music Awards

Music Awards are available at 11+. These awards entitle successful candidates to music lessons in one or two instruments throughout their Senior School career at PGHS, subject to continued progress and contribution to the musical life of the School.

 Value of Scholarships and Awards

Scholarships will be awarded at a rate of no more than 10% of School fees. Scholarships may be awarded in conjunction with a Bursary but not another Scholarship. Scholarships are held for the duration of a pupil’s time at the School, subject to sustained levels of performance and participation. Academic Awards are subject to the same information as given above for Scholarships. Music Awards are subject to the information given in the Music Award section above and may be granted in conjunction with a Bursary and another Scholarship or Award.

 Bursaries at 11+

A limited number of means-tested Bursaries giving assistance towards the tuition fees are available for entrance into the School at 11+. Bursary forms are available from the School on request, and all parents wishing to be considered for a Bursary should complete and submit this form before their daughter sits the 11+ Entrance Examination on Saturday 15th January 2022. Before requesting a Bursary form, parents must first register their daughter for a place. Parents are normally informed of the outcome of their Bursary application by mid-February.

Bursaries are means tested in accordance with the School’s criteria. Both parents are required to provide proof of their income and assets. The level of support varies according to parental need and the funds available. Before the offer of a Bursary is confirmed, a member of staff and/or a member of the Governing Body may visit the family at their home.

Bursaries are reviewed annually and the School reserves the right to require parents to provide evidence of financial circumstances each year.

The retention of a Bursary, Scholarship, Subject Award or Music Award for the full five years of the Senior School for a successful candidate will be dependent on continuing merit and satisfactory behaviour as judged by the Headmistress.
