Scholarships & Bursaries
At JAGS, we strive to attract intellectually curious girls, regardless of their economic background, so we have our own means-tested bursary scheme for all year groups from 11+ entry upwards. We also offer scholarships to pupils who show exceptional potential academically and in Art, Music and Sport at 11+, deferred 13+ and 16+ entry. Sports scholarships are also offered at 11+ and deferred 13+ entry.
Our bursaries are crucial in making us accessible to everyone, not just to those whose families can afford the fees. We provide financial assistance for up to 100% of fees as well as the costs of uniform, travel, trips and lunches. Bursaries cover well over 80% of all fees for the 130 pupils whose families currently receive them.
Bursaries may be awarded on entry across all year groups and may also help current pupils continue their education at JAGS should their families’ financial circumstances change.
Currently the School funds at least 20 new bursaries every year and we will undertake new fundraising initiatives over the next year to help us increase this. Our aim is to be needs-blind.
We award scholarships to recognise high academic potential or the ability to excel in art, music or sports. Up to 20 Academic scholarships may be awarded each year based on the results of the Senior School Entrance Examination. In addition to those for Music, Art and Sport, these scholarships may be supplemented on a means-tested basis in line with the bursary scheme. Our scholarships are usually £1000 per annum; however, in exceptional circumstances, we will award up to £4000 per annum to highly talented applicants.
We also award a number of Sixth Form scholarships based on GCSE results; these include awards through competition for Art, and Music.
