Rewarding Talent FAQs

What is the difference between a Scholarship and a Bursary?

Scholarships are awarded to pupils through our admissions process and recognise gifted and talented pupils and are awarded at the discretion of the Head. Means tested Bursaries are awarded to those who meet our entrance criteria but who, due to family circumstances, might not otherwise be able to benefit from a College education. A Bursary award may also be supplemented with a Scholarship.

At what age can my child apply for a Scholarship? 

Scholarships are offered to pupils aged 10 and above and are awarded to candidates who show outstanding talent, based on ability and potential. For more information on how to apply for a scholarship award, please visit the Scholarships page.
