Introduction to Sixth Form Scholarships

In addition to means-tested Foundation Awards and Bursaries that are available for girls in the Senior School, we have several Scholarships already in existence for WGHS girls progressing to the Sixth Form and for girls new to us at 16+.

Detailed online and in the Sixth Form prospectus, current pupils qualify for the following Sixth Form Scholarships:

  • Edith Blair Scholarship (for a range of subjects including Art, Music and PE)
  • Music 
  • Sport
  • Art
  • Isobel Fowler Textiles Scholarship
  • Mary Smith Classics Scholarship

In addition to these scholarships, Year 11 students can apply for an Academic Scholarship by taking an examination paper in a subject of their choice, alongside a general paper. Approximately, fifteen Academic Scholarships will be awarded initially, however, any students who were not awarded a scholarship on the basis of this exam, but who achieve eight or more GCSEs at Grade 8 or above, will also be awarded an Academic Scholarship for the Sixth Form. Each award is worth £1000 in fee remission (£500 in Year 12 and £500 in Year 13).
