St Margaret’s girls come from a variety of backgrounds. In order to enable more girls to benefit from our education, we offer a Bursary Programme whereby the school pays up to 100% of a girl’s fees.
Girls applying for a Bursary place go through the same assessment process as any other prospective pupil and from Year 7 onwards admission is based on a standard entrance test (English and Maths again). They are not required to achieve any more than the minimum entry criteria.
Bursaries are normally awarded to Years 7 and above, but if there are no suitable applications these may be offered to applicants in lower years.
The amount of Bursary assistance varies according to the financial situation of her parent/parents. Those on a low income may be eligible for the school to pay all of a girl’s fees. The judgement is based on income and assets, so you will be required to show an independent evaluator items like bank statements or, where appropriate, payslips. You may also be visited at home. All information is kept confidential.
What to do next
