The Grammar School at Leeds
Formed in 2007 from the merger of two large selective single-sex schools. The Junior and Senior schools are housed on a purpose built campus in Alwoodley while Rose Court is located in Headingley. The school is co-educational for pastoral and co-curricular purposes but, in Years 7-11, there are single-gender classes for most subjects.

Bursaries at The Grammar School at Leeds
The Grammar School at Leeds is committed to providing financial support for academically talented children from low income backgrounds through means-tested bursaries. These bursaries are available to external pupils joining the school into years 7 or 12.
Demand for bursaries is high, with typically around 10 applications for each year 7 bursary and around 3 applications for each year 12 bursary, therefore we encourage families to read carefully the academic and financial criteria as stated in our bursary policy.
Depending on the family’s financial circumstances and the pupil’s academic performance throughout our assessment process bursaries awarded can range in value from 10% to 100%.
Families looking to apply for a year 7 bursary in September 2020 should submit their applications by 31 October 2019 whilst those looking to apply for a year 12 bursary should submit their applications by February 2020.
