Assisted Places

Our school aims to offer an exceptional education to the brightest girls in the Birmingham area, irrespective of their parents’ ability to pay fees. Funding for Assisted Places is provided thanks to a substantial grant from the Governors of the King Edward VI Foundation and generous donations from Old Edwardians.

An Assisted Place is awarded on academic merit based on the school’s own entrance examination at 11+ and academic interview at 16+. Assisted Places are means-tested, based on family income and assets.

Demand for Assisted Places far exceeds the funds currently available, so unfortunately not all girls who perform well in the examination and apply for an Assisted Place can be funded.

Parents must indicate interest in an Assisted Place on the Registration Form.

Please see the attached brochure for further detailed information.
