We believe that City’s vast range of educational opportunities must be open to girls who will benefit most from learning here, not just those who can afford the fees.

We are committed to providing school places to girls regardless of financial means, and offer bursaries and scholarships for entry into Year 7 (11+) and Year 12 (16+) to families who might not initially consider City for their daughter for financial reasons. Over 20% of our Senior School girls currently receive some form of financial assistance, whether a small scholarship or a full fee bursary.

Bursary awards range from smaller awards of 20% right up to 100% (full fee) awards. These awards are all means tested. Although we do not offer academic scholarships, we do provide small scholarships in music at 11+ and 16+ entry, and drama, sports and art at 16+ entry only.
