Scholarships & Bursaries
We offer a number of small scholarships to Year 7 entrants each year as follows:
Academic Scholarships are awarded based on the results in papers taken in English, Mathematics and Science. Girls who have performed exceptionally well in the Abbot’s Hill Entrance Examination will be invited to sit these papers.
Candidates are asked to bring a portfolio of their work to discuss with the Head of Art and Design and are given a specific Art task to complete.
Candidates are expected to attend an Interview and Audition performance of a solo speech of approximately two minutes, participate in a Drama Workshop and write a letter outlining their passion for, and achievements, in drama. You should include in the letter previous Drama and/or Musical Theatre experience, including participation in school plays (and roles), arts festivals, drama clubs, LAMDA etc.
Candidates are expected to have an audition with the Director of Music, in their chosen instrument(s) or vocally. Instrumentalists should be at least Grade 4 level and singers should be experienced and have potential. We are looking for enthusiasm and musicality as well as a commitment to the musical life of the School.
Candidates will be asked to attend an activity session with the Sports Department staff to assess their performance.
Bursaries may be available for pupils applying particularly for entry to Year 7. In addition the Governors’ Bursary Committee will occasionally consider Bursaries to enable girls to join the School in the Prep School if funds permit.
