On receipt of an application form we will contact your daughter’s present Head Teacher for a report on her progress. It is important that her present school has been informed of the application.

GDST Bursaries

A limited number of these are available to girls joining the school in Year 7 and 12 who would not otherwise be able to benefit from a Croydon High School education.

Bursaries are means tested and the value of the bursary is related to the income and financial resources of the girl's family. The award of a Bursary is at the Head’s discretion based on a girl’s performance in the entrance test and interview.

Online Bursary forms are available to be completed in the Autumn term, once the Application Form has been received, with the deadline of completion by 3rd November 2017. Post-entry bursaries may be awarded to girls whose families suffer unexpected financial difficulties and are no longer able to pay the fees in full.
