City of London School for Girls is a unique learning environment, and we are delighted that you are considering joining us.

We aim to make the admissions process as seamless and transparent as possible. This section of our website will reflect the most up-to-date information and dates for entry in the coming academic year. If you have any questions, please contact our admissions team at

Music scholarships

Music is at the heart of the school, with myriad performance opportunities both within the school and beyond.

We offer internal scholarships as well as a joint scholarship with the neighbouring Junior Guildhall School, located just two minutes away, next to the Barbican Centre. Scholars play an important role contributing to the musical life of the school, and we hope that they will take on leadership roles as they move up City.

At 11+, potential music scholars must be working at a minimum of at least Grade 6 standard.

At 16+, potential music scholars must be at least Grade 8 standard. Students do not necessarily need to choose music as an A level option, but it is encouraged.
