Scholarship Information

CLC offers an exciting and enriching Scholarship Programme with a wealth of opportunities aimed at stretching and developing individual talent for the benefit of the whole community. Being a Scholar is a position of honour at CLC and those who earn the title will play a key role in the life of the school and enjoy the chance to lead and inspire others whilst fulfilling their own potential. Scholarship Awards do not carry fee remission but families can apply for assistance with fees (from 1%-100%, depending on circumstances) through our Beale Award scheme.

Scholarships are awarded at the following points of entry:

11+: Academic, Music
13+: Academic, Music, Art, Sport
Sixth Form: Academic, Music, Art, Sport

Bursary Information

Our means-tested bursaries are known as Beale Awards, named after our second Principal, Dorothea Beale, who was a pioneer in the education of young women. These awards offer free or partially-funded places to talented girls seeking either boarding or day places. We are committed to educating those whom we believe are likely to flourish here, regardless of their means and these awards take into account both the financial circumstances of an applicant’s family and her performance in written entrance tests and interviews.

It is essential that families who wish to explore financial support options contact the Admissions Department ( well in advance of the proposed date of admission.

This will enable the greatest chance of being considered for the funds available. Applications for Beale Awards made after the published deadline will not be considered. Beale Awards will only be available to girls when we can guarantee that the fee paying parent(s) are resident in the UK for tax purposes.
