Bursaries and Scholarships

Walthamstow Hall's bursary scheme provides financial help with school fees based on a family's financial circumstances.

Scholarships and other financial awards, worth up to 50% of fees, are also available to those Sixth Form students who demonstrate exceptional academic potential.

Bursaries

The Bursary Fund is designed to ensure that girls are not prevented from benefiting from or continuing with an education at Walthamstow Hall because of their family's financial circumstances.

Bursaries are awarded by the Governors and the names of girls in receipt of them remain confidential. The school's academic entrance requirements must be fulfilled.

Generous allowances are made where parents have more than one daughter at the school.

Scholarships, Exhibitions and Other Awards

In the Sixth Form Academic scholarships and Art Awards are offered.

Once awarded, a scholarship, exhibition or award is held throughout the remainder of a girl's time at Walthamstow Hall, subject to her making satisfactory progress.

Candidates for all scholarships, exhibitions and awards must satisfy the school's academic entrance requirements. Internal and external candidates may apply.
