Bursaries and Scholarships are available to students joining a GDST senior school in year 7 or Year 12. We regret that applications for bursaries and scholarships for students entering other year groups or applying late cannot be considered.


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 when they become available from mid-September 2017. For year 7 entry, please apply by 30 November 2017. 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. In addition, there are awards for direct entry to the Sixth Form, including two full bursaries, kindly sponsored by HSBC, for Sixth Form applicants from state schools. For Sixth Form entry, please apply by 10 November 2017 if you wish to be considered for a bursary.
