Scholarships and Bursaries


In 2011, St Mary’s launched a new scholarship and bursary scheme which aims to enable more girls to benefit from the leading education the school provides.

Thanks to the support of the school’s founders, the sisters of St Marie Madeleine Postel, St Mary’s now offers two free places a year together with bursaries up to the value of 50% off the school fees. These bursaries are subject to the candidate’s successful performance in the school’s entrance examination and a means-tested assessment.

The school also offers Music, Choral, Drama, Art, Sport and Academic scholarships. There is also a Theology Scholarship on offer to girls entering the Sixth Form.  These awards are based on the demonstration of excellence in these areas alone.

All candidates who wish to be considered for a scholarship or bursary award in the Senior School sit the entrance examination on Friday 24th January 2014.  Applications for Scholarships, bursaries and free places must also be submitted prior to the entrance examination for candidates to be eligible.
