We award a number of Academic, Art, Chess, Music and Sports Scholarships each year for entry into Years 6, 7 and 8. We also welcome applications for scholarships from good all-rounders; boys and girls who have reached a good standard academically and show promise in specific areas such as Art, Music or Sport.
