Edgbaston High School for Girls

Edgbaston High is an ambitious and thriving school with a focus on providing a broad, modern, enriching and inspiring education to ensure that EHS girls have the confidence, independence, motivation and ambition to succeed within and beyond the school.

At Edgbaston, we acknowledge that a good education incorporates achieving excellent academic qualifications and our dedicated and committed staff enable the girls to expand their academic horizons and realise their potential. However, children should never be defined by their examination results and an outstanding education goes far beyond this; it is about inspiring others to aspire and achieve in multiple areas, and to enjoy the process of this as much as the end result.

At EHS, we teach students to appreciate the impact that they have on others and particularly the responsibility that they have to give of their time, talents and charity to the wider community. We foster an environment where students can expand their minds, think flexibly, develop the skills of leadership that they all have within them, and grow as individuals.

Children should be, and deserve to be empowered, inspired and challenged throughout their education so that they leave school fully equipped to succeed in whatever they decide to pursue.

From its inception Edgbaston High has recognised and celebrated everyone as individuals but has also understood the power of the community. We know that when students, staff, parents and governors are all working together the best outcomes are elicited for all.

As Headmistress, the EHS girls never fail to impress me with their achievements and the genuine desire they have to help others. Edgbaston High truly is a school that lives by its motto ‘Fideliter, Fortiter, Feliciter’ (faithfully, strongly, successfully).

You are warmly invited to visit us so that you can see Edgbaston High for yourself and I very much look forward to welcoming you.

Bursaries & Scholarships

The School offers Scholarships at 11+ and 16+. All awards are granted on the basis of evidence of excellence and outstanding potential in a given area.

Scholarships at entry to Senior School
The following named scholarships are awarded annually at 11+, based on a girl’s performance in the Entrance Test.

Chamberlain Scholarship

Bursaries
Each year, a limited number of means-tested Bursaries are available for girls who show good academic ability. Bursaries are awarded to girls entering Year 7 or Sixth Form only. All Bursaries are means-tested, that is, they are dependent on parental income, and may cover a percentage of the School fees. They are granted at the discretion of the Headmistress.

For the school to consider any bursary application both parents must be in paid employment. All means-tested bursaries are re-assessed on an annual basis to allow for change in circumstances.

Bursary Forms can be requested at the time of registering.

All girls registered for the Year 7 Entrance Examination will be considered for an academic scholarship, irrespective of their family’s eligibility to qualify for a means-tested Bursary.

Scholarships at entry to Sixth Form
A number of Sixth Form Academic Scholarships are awarded each year to current pupils by internal review and external candidates by examination. We also have a Music Scholarship available to girls entering the Sixth Form.
