Scholarships

2014_SS_Jessica Meakin

Scholarships are awarded on merit to the highest achievers in competitive examinations and assessments. Candidates who win awards will have outstanding ability and the school will undertake to nurture, recognise and celebrate that talent. Our school is an ambitious, purposeful environment where pupils embrace the opportunities offered to them and specialise in areas where they have particular strengths and aptitudes.

Whilst there is certainly kudos in being recognised as a Scholar there is also considerable commitment if awarded. We expect our Scholars to contribute to the community by setting the standards and being identifiable as role models for those qualities we believe are integral to success: organisation, commitment, resilience and persistence are equally as important as underlying skill.

Awards of varying value offset against the tuition fees for both day and boarding pupils are awarded in Academic, Art, Drama, Music and Sport categories. Where fees are still prohibitively expensive, annually means-tested bursaries can be awarded to supplement a Scholarship.
