Scholarships and Bursaries


At More House we aim to reward and encourage excellence.  We offer Academic, Sport, Art, Drama and Music scholarships and these are normally awarded at the main entry points to the school, namely Year 7 and LVIth. 

Full details of our Scholarship Programme can be found in the document on the left.  


Applications for scholarships can be made at any time before or up to the closing date for registrations.  Applicants applying for all scholarships other than academic will be sent an additional application form to complete.  They will then be invited for assessment and interview in the January of the year of entry.  Academic scholarships are awarded on the basis of the results of examination and will also be invited in for an additional interview.  


Bursaries are considered for pupils entering the school in Year 7 and thus will be in place before the academic year starts. Special governors’ bursaries may be awarded at any point in the academic year and will normally be in response to a particular set of circumstances, as well as having special provisions attached. Hardship bursaries are usually awarded only to girls already in the school and in examination years.

Parents who wish to apply for bursaries should request an application form from the company secretary to the trust, Mrs Clarissa Ralston - Boyle (email This form, when completed by the parent concerned, provides financial disclosure concerning parental income and assets. The entry for bursaries for Year 7 closes at the end of November each year.
