Scholarships

2014_SS_Jessica MeakinScholarships 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 that talent. Scholars will be expected to make a major contribution to the school.

Awards up to the value of 25% of the tuition fees for both day and boarding pupils, are awarded in Academic, Music, Sport, Art and Drama categories and, at the discretion of the Head or Head of the Junior School, to ‘all-rounders’. Where fees are still prohibitively expensive, means-tested bursaries can be awarded to supplement a Scholarship.
