Scholarships and Assessments

Scholarships are available when pupils enter at the start of each year. Pupils may take the Scholarship tests and exams only once at Junior School.

All pupils are eligible to take a Scholarship to the Senior School at 13 years or over.

Scholarships awarded to Junior School students will normally - after a thorough review - continue into the Senior School.

As well as sitting the scholarship exam papers in Mathematics, Creative Writing and Non-Verbal Reasoning, the Head of the Junior School will also assess each pupil on the basis of:

The scholarship date for 2018/19 entry is 30 September-1 October 2017.

Children who have been specifically entered for a Scholarship will be assessed throughout the day on the basis of the assessment tests above and their ability to demonstrate a particular flair and suitability to life at the Junior School.

Talented musicians are also invited to apply for the Neil Wylie Memorial Scholarship for Music award. Candidates will have the opportunity to demonstrate their ability during the Scholarship Day.

Each candidate or their parents should inform the candidate's present Headteacher before proceeding with an application.
