Encouraging girls to aim high

Scholarships and Bursaries

We support all girls in their individual gifts and talents. We endeavour to help each girl to discover her passion and unlock her potential.

Scholarships and the Head's Award

Our Scholarship programme is designed to identify strengths, nurture commitment and resilience, provide excitement and challenge, and to celebrate success.

We offer Academic, Art, Choral, Dance, Drama, Music and Sport Scholarships, and more information about the benefits of being a Scholar at QM and our expectations of Scholars can be found in the Scholarship Booklet below.

Scholarship Day, wherein all applicants are auditioned for the scholarships that are available, is held in the January prior to entry in the following September. You will also be asked to join us for the General Assessment Day, which takes place on the day before - find out more here.

This year’s Scholarship Day will take place on Wednesday 21 January 2021 and all registered applicants are invited to apply. For more detail on the day, include details of how to register your interest for an Scholarship, please contact the Admissions Team. Scholarships may occasionally carry a discretionary fee remission of up to 10%.

Fee Remissions and Assistance

Our aim is to encourage applications from applicants with as diverse a range of backgrounds as possible. We are committed to widening access by enabling girls, who would not otherwise be able, to join the School, and to allow students to remain in the event of an unforeseen change in a family’s financial circumstances. This can take the form of either assisted (partial remission) or transformational (significant or full remission) bursaries. We do not, however, offer bursaries or fee remissions to international students.

We welcome applications for bursaries from any family based in the UK who might, under ordinary circumstances, not consider Queen Margaret’s for their daughter for financial reasons. However, bursarial funds are limited and applications are, therefore, reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Further information about means-tested bursaries is available from the Admissions Team: All applications are treated in the strictest of confidence.

After QM I graduated from Loughborough University and now work at a prestigious advertising agency. I wouldn’t be in the same position had I not received a bursary to attend QM and, for this, I am forever grateful.
