Awards, Scholarships & Fees Assistance

Fees assistance at The Maynard School takes two forms: Means-tested Bursaries, based on parental income, and Awards or Scholarships which are awarded to girls who are academically exceptional, have particular talents in Music, Sport, Art or Performing Arts, or are all-rounders who contribute significantly to school life.

Means-Tested Support

If your daughter would benefit from the educational experience at the Maynard School, but your family is not in a position to cover the full fees, she may well be eligible for a means-tested bursary. A bursary is calculated by the Finance Office and can account for up to a 45% reduction in fees according to parental income, but as a general guide, a family with a combined income of over £50,000 is unlikely to be considered. Applicants will be asked to submit evidence of income and other financial information. This will be reviewed annually and continue through your daughter’s time at the school, including the Sixth Form.

Maynard Awards

singleThe Maynard Award Programme is an initiative which mirrors the strong ethos of The Maynard School – that an excellent education should be accessible to the most talented and gifted girls, regardless of household income. A Maynard Award offers the opportunity for successful applicants to join the school at a significantly discounted rate.
