Scholarships

Our scholarship programmes are intended to be an exciting and challenging journey of development and self discovery for talented pupils. All scholars, whatever their discipline, are expected to play an active role in the life of the College and their performance is supported and monitored through tutorials and mentorship, formal assessments, and via participation in teams, groups and societies to ensure their potential is being fully realised.

Applying for a 13+ Scholarship

In order to obtain a scholarship, it is necessary to gain a place at the College through the Entry Assessment process.

Scholarships are available for: Academic, Art, Design Technology, Drama and Music. With the large number of candidates applying each year for sport, the College offers Sport Awards for the duration of a pupil’s first year, after which a number will be offered scholarships. 

Scholarships are honorary and carry no reduction in fees but they provide access to the relevant scholarship programme.   You can find information about Bursaries here.
