There are several Scholarships available to girls at St Nicholas’ School from Year 7 entry to the Senior School only.   Each Scholarship is essentially an honorary award but does also carry a small financial award, which is credited to the pupil’s fees account for the duration of their time at the school.

Each Scholarship signifies excellence in the area to which it relates and should be a source of great pride to the holder.

Scholarship examinations for Year 7 September 2023 will be held shortly after the Entrance Examination in January 2023, at St Nicholas’ School.

Current and prospective pupils who wish to apply for a scholarship, must notify the Registrar by Friday 9th December 2022

Academic, Art, Drama, Music and Sport scholarships are available, each are worth up to 20% of the school fees, and your daughter will have to sit the Entrance Examination.

Pupils are expected to demonstrate all round ability to be considered for a scholarship. Only those who have achieved good results in the Entrance Examination will be invited to progress to the next stage.  

Pupils will then be invited for further interviews to discuss their chosen subject. They will be asked to either perform or produce a portfolio of examples, or to provide evidence of successes in their chosen field, as appropriate.  Scholarships will be awarded only if candidates meet the criteria.
