Scholarships & Bursaries

The School offers scholarships up to the value of 10% per annum of the annual tuition fees for entry in Year 7, Year 9 and in the Sixth Form. The scholarships are awarded for academic, artistic, dramatic, musical and sporting excellence. All awards are offered at the Governors’ discretion and may be reviewed at any time in light of the scholar’s performance. Before a child can be considered for a scholarship, the Registration Form must be completed and returned to the Registrar together with a non-refundable fee of £125. For overseas candidates, a registration fee of £150 is required.

11+ / 13+ Scholarships

Scholarships are offered following success in the entrance exam in January.  There is no need to apply for an academic scholarship as this is based on a successful entrance exam.

In the case of those applying for art, drama, music or sport an application form must be completed and returned to the Registrar by the given closing date. You will be invited to attend an assessment / audition day at school following the entrance exam.

Further information on the Drama, Art, Music and Sports Scholarships at 11+ / 13+ can be found in the General Information Booklet.

Sixth Form

Scholarships are offered in recognition of achievement and potential in Academic excellence, Art, Drama, DT and Sport. They are awarded for the duration of the Sixth Form. Information regarding these can be found in the Sixth Form Prospectus. Scholarship interviews will take place in the January of Year 11. Internal candidates will receive details automatically in Year 11 and external applicants should contact the Registrar directly before applying.


The School welcomes applications from students whose parents cannot afford the fees, either in full or in part. Consequently, bursaries are available on entry into the School at the ages of 11 or 16. These are means tested and awarded at the Governors’ discretion in light of the funds available, the financial circumstances of the applicant and the candidate’s performance in the entrance exam.

Financial assistance may be available in exceptional circumstances, should a family’s financial position change dramatically at a critical stage in the pupil’s education.

Application for a bursary is confidential and made through the Bursar. Once awarded, bursaries are reviewed annually and may be withdrawn, or modified, if circumstances have significantly changed since the bursary was initially awarded or if the pupil concerned is not meeting the standards expected.

For further details and a Statement of Financial Circumstances Form, please contact the Fees Assistant either via email or telephone 01932 234923.

Applications for entry in September 2021 must be received by Friday 3rd December 2020.
