Through our scholarship programme, we aim to foster and celebrate excellence. Scholarships are awarded to candidates who show outstanding talent, based on ability and potential.
All fee remissions related to scholarship awards are based on the day fee, to provide parity of financial benefit between day pupils and boarders.
The Scholarship Programme aims to reward and further encourage talented pupils. In addition, financial support may be available through our separate means-tested Financial Assistance Awards scheme.
For families keen to apply for a scholarship for their child, but concerned about affording the fees, we would encourage you to apply for a means-tested Financial Assistance Award at the same time. Please be assured that the Scholarship Programme and Financial Assistance Award applications are considered entirely separately and the need for financial assistance does not influence the outcome of the scholarship application. See our Assistance with Fees page for full details.
