Scholarships are available for entry into Year 9 or the Lower Sixth.

Academic, Art, Chess, Computer Programming, Dance, Drama, Music, Product Design and Sport Scholarships are awarded annually to candidates who are exceptionally talented in any one or two of these disciplines.

Scholarships carry a maximum fee reduction of up to 10%. If a scholarship has been awarded, parents in genuine financial need can also apply for a means-tested bursary by completing a confidential financial circumstances form. Bursaries take the form of a fee reduction (of up to 100% in exceptional circumstances) to a level dependent on the parents’ financial resources. All awards are subject to the school’s ability to fund them within the context of its overall budget, and therefore levels cannot be guaranteed.

Scholarship assessments take place in the academic year preceding entry and are open to students who have an excellent school report and recommendation from their headteacher. Candidates should be under 13 years of age on the 1 September 2021 if they are applying for a Year 9 Scholarship.
