Channing School Admissions

Scholarships & Awards Policy

Channing School seeks to recognise achievement in many ways.

One way in which this can be achieved is through making financial awards to pupils and parents to ensure that girls of exceptional ability and potential can benefit from a Channing education.

Whilst the school is committed to ensuring that financial awards are increasingly made on the basis of financial circumstances, the Headmistress also has the discretion to make financial awards of up to 10% of tuition fees on entry to the Senior School or at any point during a pupil’s career at Channing should she consider it appropriate. All applicants who sit the entrance examination are automatically considered for an Academic Scholarship. You do not need to make a separate application.

If you wish to apply for a Music Scholarship, please read the Music Scholarship Information & Criteria before submitting your Music Scholarship Application Form. All applicants who meet the published criteria will be invited to an audition in January. Scholarships are awarded for up to 50% of the tuition fees as a result of the audition and qualification in the academic examination.

The Headmistress does have the discretion to make more significant awards but this will only be exercised in exceptional circumstances.

The school offers a number of academic awards on entry to the Sixth Form. These are awarded at the discretion of the Headmistress and can be up to 50% of tuition fees. Art awards are available on entry to the Sixth Form only. The school also has funds available for Sixth Form Bursaries which are awarded on the basis of both academic achievement and ability to pay.

The Governors will decide annually on the levels of financial support which the headmistress may award.
Levels of awards are published for each academic year on the School website, in the prospectus and also in a number of commercial publications.
