The only criteria for entry to Wimbledon High School into Year 7 should be a child’s ability and potential.
If your daughter would benefit from the educational experience offered at Wimbledon High School, but your family is not in a position to cover the full fees, you may be eligible for a GDST bursary.
A number of bursaries are available for pupils entering Year 7 or Year 12. Bursaries are means-tested and provide financial assistance to cover school fees. The amount varies according to family circumstances; they can be worth up to 100% of fees, which effectively becomes 110% when additional help is added to cover uniform costs, lunches, travel, trips and other possible expenses. The GDST website outlines the criteria the GDST use in their assessment for eligibility.
“I’m proud of our lovely senior school but am also very aware that we don’t yet properly reflect the diversity of the borough. We are actively trying to address that and to enrich our whole community by ensuring all families feel welcome to apply for Wimbledon High School for their daughters. We can offer help in covering the cost of a Wimbledon High education – do contact our Head of Admissions, Bronagh Preston, to find out more.”
