We jointly offer scholarships with Stowe School and Tudor Hall School. In each case, those awarded a scholarship will be guaranteed entry to Ashfold at 11+ (Form V/Year 7 entry) and to Stowe School or Tudor Hall School at 13+ (Year 9 entry). These scholarships are supported by means-tested bursaries which could cover up to 100% of the fees.

The Scholarships are supported by means-tested bursaries which could cover up to 100% of the fees at both schools. These bursaries will also be guaranteed for the duration of your child's education at Ashfold in Forms V and VI/Years 7 and 8, and at Stowe School in Years 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13.

Candidates for the Academic Scholarship must be able to demonstrate outstanding potential in English, Mathematics and Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning papers.

Candidates for the All-Rounder Scholarship must be able to demonstrate both strong academic potential and an outstanding range of sporting, musical and/or artistic abilities. This will be judged through practical sessions and on assessment of a candidate's portfolio.

Following the assessments, short-listed candidates will be invited for interview at Stowe School.

Lady Popplewell Awards for Girls

Lady Popplewell was a Governor at Ashfold for many years. She was a passionate advocate of girls staying on to 13+, so that they could make the most of the many opportunities on offer at Ashfold in Forms V and VI. When she died, the Governors were proud to establish these awards in her name.

Lady Popplewell Awards can be awarded to girls entering Form V who bring something extra to the School. They may be girls who thrive on the many opportunities on offer at Ashfold or girls with a particular passion for art, design technology, history, languages, music, drama, sport or something entirely different. We see our award winners as girls who are able to make a significant contribution to school life and enrich the school community.

Award winners are expected to continue at Ashfold for Forms V and VI.

These prestigious awards come with a 5% fee discount on school fees for Forms V and VI. In addition, means-tested bursaries may also be awarded up to a value of 25% of fees.

There is no formal application form for Lady Popplewell awards. In the Autumn Term, we contact parents of girls in Form IV and invite them to put their daughter's names forward for the award. 

For more information about Lady Popplewell Awards, please contact the Deputy Head & Head of Girls, Mrs Jessica Williams
