Scholarships

We are pleased to offer a range of scholarships to prospective Year 7 pupils demonstrating outstanding achievement, talent and/or potential in a certain subject area.

Scholarships are awarded solely on merit and at the discretion of the Principal.

Applicants for Academic, English or Mathematics Scholarships are required to undertake an assessment in English and Mathematics. If any excel in both subjects, they may be awarded Academic Scholarships, and if any perform well in one, they may receive a separate English or Mathematics Scholarship.

We also encourage candidates to apply for Senior Scholarships in Music and Performance, Creative Art, Science or Sport. Again, all applications are judged purely on merit, based on evidence gathered via a range of methods including auditions, work samples, interviews and references.

Applicants can apply for up to two scholarships.

All Scholars are expected to participate fully in all activities relating to their award and to demonstrate commitment and leadership in their field.

Bursaries

We offer a limited number of means-tested bursaries to make our education accessible to children we believe will contribute positively to school life and who demonstrate excellent behaviour and a love of learning.

Discounts are applied to core school fees excluding the cost of school lunches and any other additional payments. All bursaries are awarded for one academic year at the discretion of the Principal, subject to the availability of funds, and must be re-applied for annually.
