Maynard Awards

What are the Maynard Awards?


singleWe are excited to launch the Maynard Award Programme, a new initiative aimed at making an excellent education more accessible regardless of household income. If your daughter is academic, sporty, musical or creative, but your family is not in a position to cover the full fees, she may well be eligible for a Maynard Award.

There are 19 Awards available to girls interested in joining the school in September 2017 which can offer up to 75% off school fees for the duration of their education here. For girls interested in joining the Sixth Form, five of these awards can offer a 100% reduction in fees.

Maynard Awards combine a scholarship awarded at the discretion of the Headmistress – primarily for academic ability but enhanced due to sporting, musical or creative talent – with a means-tested bursary, based on total family income.

We are an inclusive school, where talent and ability – whether it be in music, drama, art, sport or academia – are nurtured for girls from all sectors of the community. We hope that the Maynard Awards will open up many doors and provide opportunities to those who had previously ruled out the school because of financial circumstances.

The Maynard Awards will run in conjunction with the other 26 scholarships already on offer for entry at 11+, 13+ and the Sixth Form.

Who can apply?


Any student interested in joining The Maynard from Year 7 through to the Sixth Form can apply for a Maynard Award.

You must be able to demonstrate excellent academic and/or extracurricular achievements which would enhance our vibrant community.

How to apply


To apply for a Maynard Award simply complete the Maynard Awards application form here.

Our Admissions Office will then contact you and you will be asked to complete the Maynard School Registration Form. For entry into Year 7 or Year 9 your daughter will then be invited to attend one of our Entrance Assessment days which take place every January. Her performance in this assessment will be part of the award criteria.

Although we have set dates each January, Entrance Assessments can be arranged all year round, and Maynard Awards can be offered throughout the year at the Headmistress’ discretion, depending on availability.

Students joining the Lower 6 will be assessed by appointment.

For more information please contact Wendy Parker in our Admissions Office on 01392 355998 or admissions@maynard.co.uk who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
