How to apply for a Scholarship
Upon application to the School, you can indicate an interest in applying for a Scholarship. You will then be contacted by the registrar with an online Scholarship form.
All candidates who sit the Entrance Exam are automatically considered for an Academic Scholarship.
The Academic Scholarship is usually worth between 5% and 25% of the school fees. The Academic Scholarship is awarded to girls who perform exceptionally well in the Entrance Exam.
All girls who sit the Entrance Exam are considered for the Academic Scholarship. A Scholarship can be combined with a bursary in cases of financial need and where a student meets the criteria based on an assessment of parents’ income.
Each year we award Academic Scholarships to girls who achieve the highest overall results in the Entrance Exam. We also award Academic Scholarships to those attaining the highest marks in the English paper and the Mathematics paper.
Approximately ten Academic Scholarships are offered each year for entry into Year 7.
We are looking for girls who show excellent musical potential, who will be keen to enter fully into the musical life of the school and take a lead by being an ambassador for Music within the school. Our Music Scholars will be expected to participate in at least two ensembles/music clubs. Many Music Scholars also act as mentors to younger girls as they move up through the school and support the younger ensembles or even run one themselves.
Existing skills and future potential will be taken into account as will evidence of an active interest in Music as demonstrated in her application form, references, marksheets from her most recent exam(s) and interview. The selection and audition process is designed to allow each girl an equal opportunity to display her musicality and musical potential regardless of amount of experience so far.
Candidates will be asked to:
- Play and/or sing two contrasting short pieces of their own choice. This can be on the same instrument or on two different instruments. An accompanist is not provided, however, you may bring your own accompanist if you wish.
- The Music staff will ask you to do some simple aural tests.
- There will be a short interview in which girls will be given the opportunity to further demonstrate their passion for and involvement in Music.
We are looking for talented girls with enthusiasm and commitment to sports who will make a significant contribution to Sheffield Girls' sports teams.

Candidates will take part in the following activities:

Both of the above will involve assessment of general athletic ability.
