Tormead offers a range of scholarships, available at different stages of your daughter’s academic career, to acknowledge and celebrate your daughter’s achievements and talents.
Scholarships are designed to recognise and develop the girls’ talents, interests and aptitudes, whilst providing them with both enrichment and support.
Available scholarships include Academic, Art, Drama, Music and Sport, and are worth up to 10% of the current tuition fees. Each year, the number of scholarships awarded is at the discretion of the Head. All scholarships, which can be held for the whole of a girl’s time at Tormead, are reviewed annually. We look forward to award-holders remaining at Tormead until they have completed their A Level examinations, thus making a significant contribution to school life.
For further details on the scholarships available at different stages, download the booklets below.
Senior School Scholarships
At 11+ entry, we offer Academic, Art, Drama, Music and Sports Scholarships. There are no separate Academic Scholarship papers or interviews and so everyone sitting the 11+ Entrance Examination is automatically considered for these scholarships.
Details for how to apply for the 11+ Art, Drama, Music and Sports Scholarships are sent to all registered candidates along with their examination pack in late October.
The Governors of Tormead are committed to broadening access to the school by offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with the payment of school fees. Entrance Bursaries are available for new applicants to the school at 11+ and 16+, where a place has been offered but parents/guardians are unable to fund the tuition fees.
Entrance Bursaries may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% of the tuition fees and may include assistance with additional expenses such as school uniform and residential trips, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants. In some cases, assistance with lunches and transport to/from school will also be available.
A limited number of Hardship Bursaries are available for existing pupils where a change in the parents’/guardians’ circumstances has resulted in difficulty meeting tuition fees and which could result in the pupil being withdrawn part-way through a key stage of her education.
The number of bursaries available each year is limited and, unfortunately, we are unable to consider applications made after the published deadline. Interest must be registered by Monday 1 November 2021 and completed paperwork must be received by Monday 22 November 2021.
