With the exception of Art and Music Scholarships (see below) Scholarships are offered solely on entry to the School, except in cases where an existing pupil has entered the School between standard points of entry and has therefore had no previous opportunity to compete for a scholarship. The value of the majority of awards is in the region of 10% and in no case exceeds 50% of the fees.
ENTRY AT 11+
Academic Scholarships are awarded on the basis of performance in the Entrance Examination. No subject-specific Scholarships are available at this level, with the exception of choral scholarships, (see below).
All boys registered for entry at 11+ will be automatically considered for scholarships; a separate application is not required.
These are awarded on entry at 11+ only, on the basis of audition. Those to whom awards are made must first meet the academic criteria for entry in the 11+ entrance examination.
ENTRY AT 13+
The Academic Scholarship examinations take place at the beginning of February over three days.
Candidates sit papers in English, Maths, Science, French, History, Geography and optional Latin.
ART, MUSIC AND SPORT SCHOLARSHIPS
Assessments take place towards the end of the same week as the Academic Scholarships. They are open to both internal and external candidates.
ENTRY AT 16+
The Scholarship examination will be held in November, and consists of a Verbal Reasoning test, plus papers in two subjects of the candidate’s choosing. The optional subjects should normally be two of those the candidate intends to study at A level, or a closely related one where the intention is to take up a subject which has not been studied at GCSE. The value of the Scholarship awards is in the region of 10% and in no case exceeds 50% of the fees. Music Scholarships are also available, auditions and interviews also take place in November.
