At QM we encourage girls to aim high and exceed their own expectations. We support all girls in their individual gifts and talents and endeavour to help each one of them to discover her passion and unlock her potential. Our Scholarship programme is designed to identify strengths, nurture commitment and resilience, provide excitement and challenge and to celebrate success.
We offer Academic, Art, Choral, Dance, Drama, Music and Sport Scholarships, and more information about the benefits of being a scholar at QM and our expectations of scholars can be found in the Scholarship Information booklet below.
Girls can apply for Scholarships at Years I, III and Lower Sixth. The Scholarship assement day for entry in September 2020 is Wednesday 22 January.
At QM our aim is to welcome students with as diverse a range of backgrounds as possible, as this enriches our community and is vital in preparing our girls for today’s world. Means tested bursaries are therefore offered to allow as many girls as possible, who meet our admission criteria, to attend QM. Further information about means tested bursaries is available in the first instance from our Admissions Team.
We offer a discount of 5% off the core fees of the eldest daughter when sisters are attending QM together, up to a maximum of 15% discount per family when three or more sisters are in School. A 20% discount on core boarding fees may be available for the daughter(s) of serving members of the Armed Forces. From time to time, we are able to offer, on a limited basis, the opportunity to deposit funds with the School to offset against future fees with a discount. For further information and availability please contact the Bursar’s office.
