Oxford High School GDST

Part of the Girls’ Day School Trust, Oxford High has long been a shining example of how to turn out fearless, confident young women with a can-do mindset and a strong moral compass – something that looks set to continue with the intelligent, capable and caring Marina Gardiner Legge now at the helm. Previously head at Heathfield, she is a passionate believer in girls-only education, and we can’t wait to see how she will shape the school over the coming years.

    A part of the Girls' Day School Trust, with around a fifth of all girls across the group receiving some form of financial assistance towards fees, Oxford High offers bursaries for entrants at Year 7 and Year 12. As a guide, they expect that a total family income of around £35,000 a year might make a girl eligible for a full bursary, with an upper limit of around £85,000. There is some consideration of academic ability in the decision to award bursaries, although once awarded a bursary it is expected to remain for the student’s entire time at the school, albeit with yearly reviews of the amount awarded.

    Usually bursaries range from 100 per cent to 30 per cent on a sliding scale; scholarships (music, sport and sixth form) and bursaries can be combined. The school receives more demand for bursaries than it is able to provide, and so competition is a factor.

    More information as well as an overview of the GDST bursary policy can be found at their website:
