GDST Bursaries

A limited number of means-tested bursaries are available for girls joining us in Year 7 or Year 12.

Would your daughter benefit from a Newcastle High education but your family is not in a position to cover the full fees? You may be eligible for a bursary through the Girls’ Day School Trust.

Our school and the GDST were founded by committed philanthropists who wanted to make an outstanding education available to young women and we are proud to continue this philosophy today.  Every girl who is bright and keen should be given the opportunity to fulfil her potential regardless of financial circumstances. That’s why the GDST and NHSG offer bursaries to provide the assistance they need.  A bursary can transform lives and raise aspirations.

 “Holly’s excitement and enthusiasm at being awarded a bursary has driven her to engage in all aspects of school life. She’s determined and focused and the NHSG’s friendly environment has allowed her to flourish.” 

Reece Foundation Bursaries for Sixth Form

We are delighted to be able to offer a new Sixth Form bursary scheme for girls who are intending to take a higher education course in Engineering after completing their A Levels at the school.

The Reece Foundation will support a girl with a means-tested bursary of up to 100% of school fees for the duration of her Sixth Form at Newcastle High.
