Please contact the Bursar for further information. In the case of Music and Art scholarships, girls who have indicated that they would like to be considered for an award and who have performed well in the entrance examinations are invited to Queen's for assessment.
Candidates for Music scholarships play their instrument s to the Director of Music, and those for Art scholarships bring a portfolio of work and undergo a practical test.
Academic scholarships are also awarded on entry to the Senior College Sixth Form. Both internal and external candidates are welcome to apply, and scholarship examinations are held each year in November. At least one Music scholarship and one Art scholarship are usually awarded at this stage too.
A bursary may be awarded in addition to a scholarship if financial support is necessary.

The Council reserves the right to increase tuition fees without notice in the event of an increase in the approved scale of teachers' salaries. Extras Fees for extras such as lunches, trips and textbooks are charged in arrears.
Fees in Advance A discount is offered to the termly fee if fees are paid in advance for one full year or more. The policy can be found here. Payment Payment may be made by cheque or bank transfer. Parents wishing to pay fees by direct debit should apply to the 'School Fee Plan' at www.
Interest will be charged on any school account which becomes overdue, and the Council may require the withdrawal of a girl whose fees are persistently late. Unfortunately no remission of fees can be granted for absence. A term's notice in writing must be given before the withdrawal of a girl from the College or a term's fees in lieu of notice will be payable.
Applicants come from all over London, from a wide range of both independent prep schools and state primaries. Candidates from Queen's College Preparatory School follow the same entry procedure as other applicants. All candidates are invited to attend an interview and a reference is requested from the candidate's school.
Our policy is to offer places on the basis of the whole picture created by the examination result, the interview performance and the school reference. We look very carefully at all three aspects to gauge a candidate's potential. The entrance examination will be held on Friday 11 January at 10am.
The date for interviews is Saturday 12 January Admission is on the basis of an interview with the Head of the Senior College and a good reference with predicted GCSE grades from the candidate's current school.
Occasionally we may ask a girl to sit a short test in a particular subject or subjects, and entry is always subject to a minimum performance at GCSE as follows: A good pass grade 5 or C or above in Mathematics A good pass grade 5 or C or above in English Language The minimum grades required for each of their preferred A level subjects see attached A minimum overall points score from their entire set of GCSEs, as follows: Grades of lower than 5 or C will not count towards the points total.
Generous bursaries are available to academically able girls whose families might not otherwise be able to afford our fees. For more information, please take a look at our Sixth Form page by clicking on the tab above.
