Bursaries & Scholarships

Since its foundation in 1850, North London Collegiate School has been committed to providing an accessible, affordable education for girls of ability. To attract able girls and to help those who might otherwise be unable to attend a fee-paying school, we offer bursaries, scholarships and music scholarships. However, these are only available in the Senior School.

Academic Scholarships
Academic scholarships are based solely on the entrance examination results at 11+ and 16+, with awards made on academic merit irrespective of financial means. There are no special scholarship examinations nor do parents apply for a scholarship. The value of scholarships is up to 50% of fees and is valid until the end of a girl’s education at North London Collegiate School.

Music Scholarships
A number of music scholarships are awarded at 11+ on the basis of merit. Girls must have reached grade 5 distinction standard before the auditions take place, and they must pass the entrance examination and a music audition conducted by the music department to qualify. In addition, girls on a music scholarship may be eligible for a bursary.

Bursaries
Bursaries are only available to pupils from 11+ and 16+. Bursaries are related to the income and assets of the family, and are means tested and reviewed annually. Bursaries may also take into account academic merit. It is not unusual for a girl to be a recipient of both a scholarship and a bursary. The value of bursaries ranges from 10% to 100% of school fees. Students holding bursaries may also be given help with expenses such as school field trips

Bursary Application forms are sent to all applicants when their daughters are invited for interview after the entrance exams. Applicants are then required to make a full declaration of their income, expenditure, assets and liabilities. This application is then reviewed by an independent third party, who also carry out home visits in order to gain a complete understanding of parental circumstances, and to view all the supporting documentation. The third party then makes a full, confidential report to the School. All offers of places include an indication of what bursary would be available if the place is accepted, but note that bursary awards do not normally cover coach costs or school lunches.

A number of music scholarships are awarded at 11+ on the basis of merit. Girls must pass the entrance examination and a music audition conducted by the music department to qualify. In addition, music scholars may be eligible for a bursary. Parents who wish their daughter to be considered for a music scholarship must fill in an application form.
