One of the really unique opportunities that our students can benefit from as alumnae: https://t.co/SXNC8Pewwp

Scholarships & Bursaries

Scholarships & Bursaries

We offer a range of scholarships and bursaries to girls who demonstrate excellent potential on entry to Year 7, Year 9 and Year 12 only.

The presence of a significant proportion of highly able and well-motivated girls from families who would otherwise be unable to consider an education at Blackheath High School, is an important factor in achieving and maintaining high academic standards for the benefit of the whole school.

Click here to view and download the GDST bursary leaflet

Scholarship application forms are available to download below.  

Academic Scholarships into Year 7, Year 9 and Year 12

All candidates who sit our 11+ and 13+ examinations in March or our 16+ scholarship test in November for entry the following September, are automatically considered for an academic scholarship. This is primarily on the basis of their performance in our examinations.  However, we also take into account how they conduct themselves at interview and the excellence of their school reference report. The best performing candidates will be short-listed for a scholarship interview with our Head.  

GDST scholarships are awarded on academic merit and the maximum value of a scholarship is 50% of the published fees. However, most scholarships are smaller and are more about the honour of the award than the amount.

In addition, at Sixth Form level (Year 12 entry), we are able to offer a number of prizes to able girls. These are of lesser monetary value than scholarships, but are nevertheless prestigious and looked upon favourably by universities.

Subject Scholarships

We also offer Art, Music and Sport scholarships to gifted girls entering our Senior School in Year 7. We also award range of Art, Music and Drama scholarships into our Sixth Form to talented girls.

Bursaries

We appreciate that not everyone can afford to pay full fees for their daughter’s education which is why we offer a number of means-tested bursaries to girls of excellent academic potential entering Year 7 or Year 12. The value of the bursary is dependent upon the income and financial resources of the applicant’s family. Bursaries are awarded on a sliding scale depending upon household income but can represent as much as full fees. A partial bursary may be granted to a girl who has won a subject scholarship, with the combined value never exceeding the full fees.

If you are interested in being considered for a bursary, please indicate this on your application form and our Admissions Team will email you the relevant log-in details for our online bursary application system.  You will be notified if your daughter’s bursary application has been successful when we dispatch our offer letters in February.

HSBC 11+ and Sixth Form Scholarships

We are very grateful to the HSBC banking group for providing two HSBC scholarships to bright girls entering in Year 7 and a  further four HSBC Scholarships to gifted girls entering our Sixth Form from state schools.  Like our GDST bursaries, HSBC places are awarded on academic merit and are also means-tested. Subject to the applicant’s family meeting the financial criteria in the first place, HSBC scholarships are then awarded on the basis of excellent performance in the school's entrance/scholarship examination and the character and potential that the applicants exhibit at interview.

Bursary and HSBC scholarship awards are reviewed annually to take into account any change in family’s circumstances. However, we generally expect that our scholarship and scholarships awards will remain throughout a girls’ career at Blackheath High, subject to good progress and excellent behaviour.
