Scholarships and Bursaries

Scholarships

Academic Scholarships

We are pleased to be able to offer scholarships to girls in Year 4 which last throughout the pupil’s time at the school. These are academic scholarships of up to 25% fee remission. The scholarship assessments take place  at the end of the Spring term and are open to internal and external candidates in Year 3. Pupils will be expected to sit a Maths paper, English comprehension paper and take part in a 10 minute interview.

Music Scholarship

This year we are excited to offer the opportunity for pupils in Year 3 to apply for our first ever Falcons Music Scholarships. The scholarship is open to both internal and external candidates and will begin in September 2019 lasting throughout the pupil’s time at the school. The scholarship will be available to String or Woodwind players. Singers may also apply but must be willing to take up a second instrument offered by the school should they receive the scholarship.

Music Scholars will be expected to maintain good progress on their instrument, ideally a grade per year and contribute to the musical life of the school through participation in ensembles, performing at concerts and being a positive role model for the department.  By the time the child reaches Year 6 they should be playing at Grade 5 level, in line with the music scholarship requirements at 11+ in many senior schools.

The music scholar will receive a 20% fee remission and free instrumental lessons on their first instrument throughout their time at Falcons School for Girls.

The Scholarship assessment day is taking place on Saturday 23rd March 2019.

To register your interest in applying for either an Academic or Music Scholarship please contact the Head of Admissions, Harriet Stokes at admissions@falconsgirls.co.uk.
