Please note that there are separate application forms for bursaries and scholarships which must be completed as well as the main online application for a place.

Bursaries

Sydenham High School offers a number of bursary awards which are designed to enable girls whose parents might not be able to afford the full fees to attend the school. The award of a bursary is based on financial circumstances and the candidate’s performance in the entrance assessments.

If you are interested in being considered for a bursary, please indicate this on your application form and the Admissions team will email you the details for the online application system, which must be completed in addition to the application form, when they become available from mid-September 2019. For year 7 entry, please apply for a bursary by Monday 25 November 2019. You will be notified if your bursary application has been successful at the same time places in the school are offered.

Sixth Form candidates (both new and progressing students) are also able to apply for bursaries. For Sixth Form entry in 2020, please apply by Friday 8 November 2019 if you wish to be considered for a bursary.

Further information about bursaries can be found here.
