Our goal is to establish an endowment fund to enable us to increase the number of bursary places available, to ensure we continue to enable the brightest and the best girls to flourish at College.
We know from experience that a rich diversity of ideas stimulates greater creativity, innovation and new ways of thinking. By enriching our classrooms with girls from a range of backgrounds, with different perspectives, we are fostering new approaches to problem solving and encouraging girls to challenge and consider alternative views to their own.
Named in honour of our longest-serving Principal, Miss Dorothea Beale, the Beale Awards enable College to offer places to the brightest and most promising girls, regardless of their circumstance. Each year we invest £1.4m to fund our means-tested bursary programme.
On average, about 60 girls are able to attend College each year with financial assistance; of these just under half are fully-funded places.
