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

In addition to these scholarships, Year 11 WGHS girls who attain 8A*s or above at GCSE become Sixth Form Scholars and are awarded a small scholarship for their Sixth Form years.
