Norwich High School for Girls (GDST)

At Norwich High School, we believe passionately in putting girls first.

We give each girl the very best opportunities to find her strengths, explore the whole breadth of subject options, and tailor all that we do around her needs as she develops into a young woman. We are a large enough school to provide rich opportunities, but yet small enough that every girl is known and valued. We are ambitious for every girl, whatever her interests, and we give her a wealth of opportunities to discover new avenues.

Our girls are just as keen to pursue computing, engineering, and the sciences, as they are the arts, languages and humanities. Innovation is built into our DNA, as we were the very first girls’ school to be founded outside London, and we continue to seek innovation in all that we do. Fostering intellectual curiosity is at the heart of our excellent academic education, but we believe that education is ultimately about more than examinations.

Our pioneering Inspiring Females programme connects bold, innovative and creative women from a range of industries and backgrounds with our girls, and provides powerful opportunities for our girls’ voices to shape the future. Our extra-curricular offer is broad, with outdoor education, and service and charities programmes a strong feature. We encourage girls to be bold outside the classroom, whether that be girls completing a 30 mile walk in a day, taking part in charitable work or setting a sporting record. Our girls excel as sportswomen, musicians, actors and in a wide range of other pursuits alongside their academic progression.

A tour of Norwich High School will allow you to see the warm relaxed relationships between the girls themselves, and between our committed staff and girls. There really is such a thing as the Norwich High spirit!

Bursaries & Scholarships

Scholarships and Bursaries – Senior School and Sixth Form

What is a Scholarship and does my daughter qualify?:
Scholarships are awarded on merit, according to academic, musical, artistic, sporting or dramatic ability. They are not means-tested and all candidates are considered for an Academic Scholarship.

The 11+ and 13+ Academic Scholarships are awarded on the basis of performance in the transfer/entrance assessment. All candidates are considered. The 16+ Scholarships are awarded on performance in the Sixth Form Scholarship examinations. Papers assess the subjects which applicants would like to follow in their Sixth Form studies. Music Scholarship applications will involve an audition.

What is a Bursary and does my daughter qualify?:
Bursaries also take into account academic merit, but are means-tested according to parental income. Most Bursaries for full fees will be awarded to girls from families with a total income of less than £35,000 and with no capital assets other than their home. It is unlikely that a part Bursary would be awarded to a family whose income is £85,000 or more. Post entry Bursaries can be considered at key stages, subject to budget. Bursaries for less than full fees will be awarded on a graded scale, according to parental income. Bursaries are reassessed annually.

How much money is offered?:
The amount offered as a Scholarship is approximately 5% to 10% of Senior School fees. More can be offered as a Bursary (30% to 100% of Senior School fees), dependent on parental income, the Bursary funds available and the number of applicants.

How many are awarded?:
The number of Scholarships varies each year, according to the standard of application.
The number of Bursaries varies each year, according to Bursary funds available.

When are they awarded?:
Scholarships are available on entry to the Senior School at 11+ and 13+ and to the Sixth Form at 16+. Further details on which Scholarships are available at the different points of entry can be obtained from the Registrar. Bursaries are available to anyone of a sufficient academic standard applying to the Senior School, if funds remain available.

How do we apply?:
Enquiries should be made to the Registrar. An application form will be sent in the information pack and a date will be set to return the completed form by.
