FOR GIRLS ENTERING YEAR 7
|Academic Scholarships worth up to 20% of fees are awarded on the basis of performance in the entrance examination followed by two further examination papers and interview. Consideration of one Academic Scholarship will be given to a Roman Catholic pupil who meets the scholarship criteria.|
Music Scholarships, worth up to 20% of fees, are awarded on the basis of audition following success in the entrance examination. Eligible pupils will usually have attained a Grade 5 level in their chosen discipline if offering a single instrument, but the School would consider Grade 4 on the main instrument if the candidate was also offering a second study. However, all-round musicianship is perhaps the more important consideration.
|Sports Scholarships, worth up to 20% of fees, are awarded on the basis of assessments following success in the entrance examination. Eligible pupils will usually be competing at club level in their particular sport and will have the potential to contribute to the School's overall sporting achievement.|
|Art and Design Scholarships, worth up to 20% of fees, are awarded on the basis of tests and the current Head’s recommendation following success in the entrance examination.|
|The Deplanck Scholarship, worth up to 25% of fees, can be awarded in exceptional circumstances to candidates who show outstanding ability in multiple fields (Academic, plus one of the following: Art and Design, Music or Sport).|
The above scholarships are tenable for seven years, subject to a satisfactory annual review of progress, with the exception of the Art and Design Scholarship which is reviewed at the end of Year 8, when Art as a compulsory subject finishes. If Art is not studied as a subject when options are chosen from Year 9 then the scholarship and its associated funding will end. Only one scholarship can be awarded to a girl in Year 7.
FOR GIRLS ENTERING THE SIXTH FORM
Academic Scholarships are awarded based on performance in an open examination.
|Creative Arts - Art and / or Design Technology|

The Sixth Form Deplanck Scholarship
A pupil may be awarded only one Sixth Form Scholarship. Sixth Form Scholarship status may be awarded in addition to earlier Academic, Music or Sports Scholarships held since Year 7. However, the total scholarship award will be up to a maximum of 25% of fees.
The value of all scholarships will be deducted from school fees. If a pupil is awarded a scholarship and is in receipt of a Bursary, then the value of the Bursary will be reviewed.
