The Senior School offers means-tested bursaries to enable girls from families facing financial limitations to benefit from a Walthamstow Hall education. Bursary applications are examined on a case-by-case basis and offered on a sliding scale dependent on the value of a family’s income and assets. Founders’ bursaries, offering up to 100% of tuition fees across 11+, 13+ and 16+ school entry are available for families in the greatest need. Parents whose daughters are in receipt of a Founder’s Bursary are asked to pay a nominal fee of £50 per term. Subject to meeting the School’s basic academic admission requirements, bursaries are agreed, subject to available funding, where a pupil would not otherwise be able to take up a place at the School because of the financial situation of a parent or guardian, thus widening access to a Walthamstow Hall education. The School also provides means-tested hardship bursaries for the families of existing pupils that have fallen on hard times wherever possible. Missionary daughters are educated free of charge where their parents are working in a foreign mission field. 

The Senior School also offers financial Awards to girls who show exceptional promise academically or in sport, drama and art. There are two types of Award; ‘Exhibitions’ are Awards worth a value of up to 24% of tuition fees and ‘Scholarships’ are Awards worth between 25 and 50% of tuition fees. Students wishing to apply for Awards are assessed by examination, interview and, where appropriate, audition/practical assessment. Awards worth 5-25% of the value of annual fees is usually the norm, but combined scholarships of a value up to 50% of the fees are also offered to very exceptional students. Recipients of Awards are referred to as ‘scholars’. 

Currently 46 girls benefit from bursary support, with 19 on 90% or above support. A further 146 girls have been awarded Scholarships ranging from 5 - 50% off fees.
