Kindergarten Funding

New for September 2022

We will be offering 30 free hours to all eligible* 3 and 4-year-olds in our Kindergarten.

In addition, parents of children who continue into Reception class will be invited to a series of complimentary sessions on how children learn and ways to support their child’s education.

Funding is available from the term after the child is 3 years old. For example, if your child is 3 in February, you will be able to apply for the funding from the Summer term onwards.  This is for the Kindergarten class only and does not apply to children in the Reception class.

Any additional sessions, plus lunch and/or supper on funded days are subject to charge.

Please contact us to register your interest.

*Please visit the website for more information on eligibility criteria. 


Financial Support / Bursaries

A small number of means-tested bursaries are available on entry to Year 7.  Bursaries may also be available to pupils in the case of unexpected hardship, either for a short period of time or to enable a pupil to complete a GCSE course when it is not in their best interest to transfer to another school.

The Trustees will decide on any level of financial support to be offered by March preceding September entry.  Documentary evidence must be provided in all cases.  A bursary application form can be obtained from the Registrar and should be submitted with a pupil’s Registration Form.  Please note bursaries are offered in line with the school’s available funding and not all applications will be accepted.  Currently we do not offer financial support to pupils in Prep School.

Academic Scholarships

Academic scholarships are available on entry to Year 7 to pupils who we believe have the capacity to reach the highest grades and to be ambassadors for the school. In addition to the Entrance Day, they will be invited in to school to sit some formal assessments which may include Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning and internal English and Maths tests.  This will take place in January, following the Entrance Day. Hollygirt will make recommendations of suitability to some following the Entrance Day but parents may opt for the additional testing if they believe it is appropriate for their child. Academic Scholarships award up to 25% reduction of basic fees for the five years a pupil will remain in Senior School. These are not means-tested but are subject to specific terms and conditions of award.

Music Scholarships

Music scholars will be given the cost of 50% of their tuition for music lessons whether or not the music lesson is with one of the school’s peripatetic teachers.

We are looking for talent and commitment – someone who practises and who will participate in all Music Department events within the school.

Sports Scholarships

The number of scholarships awarded in any one year will depend upon the number and quality of applicants. Potential pupils are invited to visit us, at an Open Morning or for a personal tour. Once registration is complete, we ask for a reference from a candidate’s current school as well as the relevant scholarship paperwork. Assessment for Scholarship usually takes place in March before entry the following September.

Scholars will have the opportunity to work closely with the Sports Department through commitment to the Physical Education programme, curricular sport and extra-curricular fixtures and sporting activities programmes.

The major sports at Hollygirt are football, hockey, cricket, netball, badminton and athletics. Young people who excel in one or more or our major sports or who can demonstrate outstanding potential in sports of their interest, are invited to apply for a Scholarship.
