Bursaries and Scholarships

We strongly believe that a Laurels School education should be available to every girl and not just those who can afford the fees.  We offer both bursaries and scholarships for 11+, 13+ & Sixth Form entry.


Bursary awards are means tested.  The worth of a bursary is awarded on a sliding scale, depending on your means.

Bursaries are awarded if a girl is successful in the entrance exam and interview; her family’s bursary application is successful; and if there are sufficient funds available in the bursary fund.

If you have any questions at all about bursary applications please email the Finance Department.

Bursary application forms are sent out by our Finance Department in November and need to be completed and returned by the due date in order to be considered.


We offer an Overall Academic Scholarship and also scholarships in Art, English, Maths and Music. These are available for each entry point. In addition, The Edith Stein Scholarship is occasionally awarded to a candidate who demonstrates a commitment to excellence and potential to be a role model for others.

Scholarships are typically in the range of 10% of the school’s annual fees and are renewed until the holder leaves the school, subject to satisfactory progress and conduct.  Applicants will be considered on the basis of their performance in the entrance examination, interview as well as their current school’s reference.  All girls are automatically considered for the Maths, English and Overall Academic Scholarships.  Families who are interested in pursuing a Art or Music Scholarship should make their formal interests known to the Admissions Officer when registering.
