Sixth Form bursaries

We are delighted to invite applications for fully funded bursaries for Sixth Form. These transformational and subject-specific bursaries are offered in addition to our standard bursaries.

To learn about our standard bursary programme, from 20-100% of fees for all students in Years 7-Upper Sixth, visit the Bursaries page.


Transformational bursaries

Transformational bursaries are available for candidates currently in a state-funded school applying to join St Helen’s Sixth Form. These bursaries cover 100% of school fees and will also cover additional costs such as school bus transport and curriculum activities. Some of the transformational bursaries may be subject specific. For these, in addition to the standard bursary application process, applicants will be required to undertake an aptitude assessment in the relevant subject. All bursaries are means-tested.

Initial application process

Once registered with the School, candidates will complete an application form on which they will indicate whether they intend to apply for a standard, transformational, or Sixth Form subject-specific bursary. They will then be required to complete a bursary application form and submit this together with supporting documentation to the address on the bursary application form.

Completed bursary applications for entry in September 2025 need to be received by Friday 18 October 2024.

Applicants will be contacted to confirm whether their application has been progressed and, if successful, that they will sit the aptitude assessment required. This assessment will take place as part of the Sixth Form interviews.
