Academic scholarships are available to those students scoring the highest overall marks in our entrance exam. The top 4 pupils will receive a £4,000 scholarship, positions 5-7 receive a £2,000 award and positions 8-10 receive a £1,000 award.  These awards will last for the duration of years 7-11 and are awarded regardless of parental income.

The school also welcomes applications from high-achieving external candidates to join Hulme’s thriving sixth form. The threshold to qualify for a sixth form scholarship will be 7A*/A (or 7-9) grades at GCSE (not ‘GSCE equivalents’) and students will need to have secured at least C (or 5) grades in English and Maths. Students meeting this standard will receive an annual reduction in fees equal to £500 per A* and £300 per A grade achieved. From September 2015 some subjects will be assessed using the 9-1 grading system. For scholarship purposes the reduction in fees for these grades will be, grade 9 – £500, grade 8 £400 and grade 7 £300. These scholarships are available to existing students and sixth form students who are new to the school, and are awarded regardless of parental income.

Means Tested Bursaries at Oldham Hulme Grammar School

The Governors of Oldham Hulme Grammar School are committed to broadening access to the school by offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support for the payment of school fees. This support is known as a bursary and takes the form of a discount of up to 100% of the tuition fees depending on the academic performance of the pupil and the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of the parents.

Bursary awards are subject to repeat testing of parental means each year and may be varied upwards or downwards depending on parental circumstances. Awards are made by reference to a scale of remissions relative to the family’s financial circumstances. This scale of awards is reviewed on a regular basis. Although the awards are linked to this scale they may be varied upwards or downwards depending upon other factors such as individual parents’/guardians’ circumstances (e.g. their savings, investments and realisable assets, as well as their income, the size of their family, any other persons dependent upon them and like factors), compassionate or other considerations.

In assessing a child’s suitability attention will be given to the academic assessment result of each applicant but potential will also be considered as well as actual achievement. Bursary funds are limited and those judged most suitable will be given priority as those likely to gain most from the educational provision. Each pupil to whom support is offered must, in the opinion of the Principal, be likely to make sound academic progress following admission and possess the potential to develop the quality of his or her work, and benefit from participation in the wider, extra-curricular activities on offer at the School. In normal circumstances, each applicant should meet the School’s normal academic requirements. Previous school reports may be consulted for evidence of good behaviour.
