U3 (Yr 7) Scholarships and Bursaries
Scholarships: Academic scholarships are awarded to pupils who perform particularly well in the U3 (Year 7) entrance assessments and who demonstrate a considerable degree of all-round commitment to the School. The formal assessment is followed by a short interview with the Head of Senior School.
Additional specialist scholarships are also awarded to pupils showing a particular talent in art, music or sport. Pupils must attend an audition/ test in order to be considered.
Highclare School Governors Prize (HSGP): Highclare School Governors Prize is an annually-awarded, means tested bursary (to cover up to 100% of school fees) given to one pupil with outstanding academic potential upon entry to the school at U3 (Year 7). The award is made following a successful entrance assessment and interview and is given at the discretion of the Headmaster.
