Sherborne Girls offers a number of scholarships, exhibitions and bursaries for girls entering the school at 11+, 13+ and 16+.

Scholarships are available in the categories of Academic, All-rounder, Art, Drama, Music and Sport. 

All awards are made on merit, with a maximum merit award of £3,000.


Bursarial support may be available in cases of demonstrable need. Bursaries are awarded on the receipt of a means-test form and are subject to regular review.

Most bursaries are awarded in conjunction with Scholarships and Exhibitions and may increase the total support to as much as 100% in exceptional circumstances. 

Military families are normally eligible for a 10% remission of fees. 

Families may write to the Bursar to be considered for bursarial help once girls are registered. Means-test forms will need to be submitted to the Bursar by no later than 31 October for Sixth Form entry or 31 December for 11+ and 13+ entry in any year for bursaries to start the following September.
