Scholarships and Bursaries
The awarding of scholarships and bursaries is an important way in which we ensure the talent and diversity of our pupil community.
We are committed to recognising and nurturing talent from the very beginning of a pupil’s journey with us. An offer of a scholarship allows pupils to benefit from tailored additional programmes from our expert teachers and passionate coaches, many of whom have achieved success at a high level themselves. We award scholarships into the Shell and Lower Sixth to pupils who excel in their Academics, Art, Drama, Design Technology, Music, Sport or a combination of areas.
Scholarships are typically honorary, but we offer a very small number of Directors’ awards in Music and Sport which carry a fee reduction of up to 20%. Scholarship assessments are held in the academic year preceding entry and are open to all pupils holding a confirmed place at the College.
Our bursarial support ensures that children who have been offered a place at the College are not prevented from joining us due to financial limitations. Families needing financial support or assistance are invited to apply for a means-tested bursary award. Parents who feel that they may need this support are warmly encouraged to discuss the matter with the Admissions Department.
