Scholarships

We are pleased to offer a range of scholarships to prospective Year 7 pupils demonstrating outstanding achievement, talent and/or potential in English, Mathematics, Academics, Science, Music and Performance, Creative Art and Sport.  Scholars are offered opportunities to develop their talents within school and are expected to act as ambassadors for the school, upholding exemplary behaviour and leading their peers in extra-curricular and enrichment activities. They make a valued contribution to the rich and vibrant life of our school.

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, and references.

Applicants can apply for up to two scholarships.

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

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.
