Beale Awards

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. You can read some of our Beale Stories here.


At College, our girls are given every opportunity to strive beyond conventional thinking. Mostly, this is encouraged by teachers, but often the perspective of the girl in the next seat is the one that will shape the discussion and take it in a new direction as a result of the question she asks, the view she holds or her challenge of the status quo.

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.
