The Heads of Department will make recommendations to the Head, who will notify successful pupils week commencing 20th February.

Scholarship discounts can not be combined with any other discount, but can be used in conjunction with a bursary.

Do you offer Bursaries?

We also offer a number of bursaries aimed at assisting academically gifted students who may not be able to consider us otherwise. Bursaries can vary in size but all are means-tested and awarded after an assessment of household income.
