In summary, the NHSG Awards for 2019 included:

NHSG Scholar Awards, Year 7

Those awarded will receive a remission of school fees of up to 30% per year for the NHSG Head's Scholar Award and up to 20% for an NHSG Scholar Award, for the duration of a girl’s school career at NHSG. 


Exhibition Awards (Dance, Music, Sport, Prior Exceptional Achievement), Year 7

We offer one specialist award for a girl who is gifted and talented in one of the listed disciplines and can demonstrate her skills and potential. The value of the Exhibition
Award is a fixed sum remission of school fees of up to £1,000 per year for the duration of a girl’s school career at NHSG and is intended to help support the pupil’s development in her discipline. 

Bursary Awards, Year 7 and Year 12 

We believe every girl who is bright and eager to learn should be given the opportunity to fulfil her potential regardless of financial circumstances,therefore we offer a limited number of bursaries to assist girls joining us in Year 7 and Year 12. These are awarded for the duration of a girl’s school
career at NHSG. Eligibility for a bursary award is determined by the outcome of a Financial Means Assessment undertaken by a girl's parents combined with the girl's academic performance.


The NHSG Awards programme is updated annually, usually by the the end of the Summer Term and applications must be completed by the end of November for entry to the School in the following September.
