Fees are reviewed every year. School uniform and trips costs would be met by parents.

To ensure that the selection process is fair, all those interested must sit the Headmaster's Scholarship Examination. Registering for the examination costs £85.Those shortlisted will also be interviewed.

The Sir Thomas White Scholarship - Sixth Form

For the last four years, girls entering the Sixth Form from a state school, and resident in Leicestershire or Rutland, have been invited to apply for a Sir Thomas White grant, which is 100%  fees-only funded for two years. The School has had five Sir Thomas Scholars in recent years.  The scholarship is for an academic girl who would not have the means to pay for a place normally. The application would be means-tested, and a bursary form, see below, would need to be completed. Predicted grades and a personal statement would be requested from the school and girls selected for interview on the basis of this information. There is no guarantee that the School will be able to help girls every year. The interviews normally occur in March. Read more about Sir Thomas White here: http://www.stwcharity.co.uk/

Contact Mrs Alice Hailes, Admissions Officer, on 0116 270 5339, a.hailes@leicesterhigh.co.uk
for more information or just an informal chat.
