A Wilderness Tuition Scholarship will provide your daughter with every opportunity to achieve her personal best, to become an independent and responsible young woman, able to take her place confidently in the world beyond school.

Each year I am able to offer a limited number of scholarships to girls who have demonstrated outstanding academic ability, a commitment to pursuing further academic success and embody the School values with a particular focus on responsible citizenship.

I invite you and your daughter to take advantage of this very special opportunity.
