Encouraging girls to aim high through Scholarships and Bursaries

Scholarships and Bursaries

At QM we encourage girls to aim high and exceed their own expectations. We support all girls in their individual gifts and talents and we endeavour to help each girl to discover her passion and unlock her potential.

Scholarship Announcement 2023-24

To celebrate being named Small Independent School of the Year, Queen Margaret’s School for Girls is awarding more Scholarships than ever before to students joining in September 2024. QM offers Academic, Sport, Art, Drama, Music, Choral and Dance Scholarships. As a result of the increased number of Scholarships available this year, two Scholarship Days are being held; one on Wednesday 24th January and one on Thursday 21st March 2024.

Assistance and Fee Remissions at Queen Margaret's

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.
