We offer means-tested bursaries to new pupils who join us into Year 7 or Year 12. Successful applicants must meet both our academic criteria and our financial criteria, to ensure that a wide-range of pupils have the opportunity to attend the school.
Over 90 pupils receive assistance towards their fees ranging from 10-100% with over 40% receiving a full bursary. Bursaries are awarded on a sliding scale of household income and the maximum household income to qualify is £70,000 pa. Most families who apply for a bursary receive free school meals. To enable us to offer support to as many families as possible we are keen to receive applications from families who are seeking a partial bursary.
The table below gives an overview of the bursary bands:
Bursaries are offered following a rigorous means-testing process which includes a financial assessment from an independent financial assessor as well as a review of the applicant’s academic performance throughout our entrance assessments. Whilst our bursary funds are growing steadily, our bursaries are extremely competitive and we typically receive ten applications for every Year 7 bursary and three applications for every Year 12 bursary.

We have a proud music tradition here at GSAL and music is an essential part of school life. We offer a small number of music scholarships to new pupils joining the school into Year 7 and, depending on the scholar’s musical ability, the scholarship is worth either a 20% reduction on school fees or covers the cost of instrumental lessons.
Music scholarship applications involve an audition and as competition is high we expect applicants to be approaching or at Grades 4 or 5, preferably on an orchestral instrument however this is not essential. Music scholarships are offered to applicants who have satisfied our entrance requirements, both in the academic examination and at interview.
In order to apply for a music scholarship, please indicate your interest when you apply to the school on our online application form.
We do not offer academic or sports scholarships.
