Haberdashers’ Girls’ School

Founded in 1875, Haberdashers’ Girls’ School is a leading independent day school for girls aged 4-18 and our academic results place us amongst the highest ranked schools in the UK.

We provide a challenging, positive, stimulating and secure community in which our students enjoy working hard to fulfil their potential.

Enjoying a rural outlook in stunning 35-acre grounds but within easy reach of London, the students have the best of both worlds; regular trips into central London for art, drama and museum visits as well as access to nature and the environment, including our very own Forest School for younger pupils.

We are a happy, hardworking, well-focussed community drawn from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures. We celebrate our traditions as being part of the larger Habs’ family but we are also very proud of our ability to nurture our pupils and prepare them to be active citizens of a global 21st century, meeting the opportunities and challenges it will throw in their way.

We have an excellent reputation for the academic attainments of all our pupils but we also believe in the development of the whole person, whether it is excelling in music, sport and drama or simply enjoying participating in them.

Charity fund-raising, working with the wider and global community and looking beyond our beautiful campus location are important aspects of the education provided here.

One of our unique features is the fact that we are based on the same campus as Habs Boys. This provides us with the best of both worlds; a single-sex education in a co-educational environment.

Our pupils leave to take up places at top universities with many happy memories of their time here, returning later in their careers to support another generation of Habs’ girls as they take their next steps into the wider world.

Bursaries & Scholarships

Academic Scholarships are offered for entry at 11+ to candidates who have achieved outstanding results in the entrance examination and the subsequent interviews.

We do not hold special scholarship examinations and no separate application is necessary. The value of scholarships is up to 50% of fees and the award is valid for the duration of the student’s time at Habs.

Music Scholarships are awarded at 11+ and occasionally at 16+ to students who show particular musical ability.

Candidates must first pass the entrance examination before a music audition with the Director of Music is considered. Music scholarships can also be offered in conjunction with academic scholarships and bursaries. Parents who feel that their daughter is eligible should fill in a Music Scholarship application form.

Bursaries are available for entry at 11+ and 16+. They are means tested and made on the basis of an assessment of the income and assets of the family, which are subject to annual review. Awards are made on a sliding scale, ranging from 10% to 100% of school fees. Students holding full fee awards may also be given help with travel and other expenses.

We are keen to encourage applications from parents whose daughters would benefit from attending Habs and who, in our judgement, would make a significant contribution to the life of the school but for whom finding the school fees would be difficult.

As a guide, free places may be awarded where total assessable household gross income is below £38,000. Where an offer of a free place is made, and a student uses the school coach service this will also be subsidised.

The ceiling for eligibility for financial support is approximately £80,000 gross. Between these two figures contributions towards fees will be on a sliding scale.

At 11+, awards may also take account of academic merit, and can be offered in conjunction with an Academic or Music Scholarship.
